The next day the girl took the same route home from work to the bus stop and found herself looking for her ‘phantom’ Van, even before she got to the nursery.

Sure enough, she saw him watering shrubs right away. He smiled as she approached. He hadn’t smiled like this when they met the day before. Oh! Her heart warmed as she saw inside his big warm smile, there was a narrow space between his two, straight front teeth.
She was late for the bus, so waved as she passed by, and said smiling back, asking, “See you tomorrow?”
She heard him call after her, still smiling, “You bet! Bring me some chocolate, will you?”
Episode Five — First Inhabitants
When eRada first formed, the order of business for the Gods was to determine …
- who would be the first inhabitants?
- How many would there be?
- How would they be selected? On what basis would they be chosen?
All good questions as life on eRada was going to include more than green plants, water, earth, and sky.
eRada was so special. it’s natural resources, enveloped in the DNA of a variety of virtues, the inhabitants also had to match the level of special-ness.
It was determined by the Gods that the first inhabitants would be Divine Spirits, each exemplifying the virtues outlined in the cypher they created to work from, below.
There would be twelve Divine Spirits; six male and six female, sent on a mission to populate and develop eRada. Each would have a primary virtue, a secondary virtue, and ‘whisps’ of a third, ancillary value. This made them rich spirits that work well together and would populate the planet.
One male and one female will join as lifetime mates as shown below.
Male offspring are born with the primary virtue of the male parent and the female offspring are born with the primary virtue of the female parent. They also received a sprinkling of each parent’s secondary and ancillary virtues.
This way the population will be a healthy cross section of virtuous souls who share private and community tasks on eRada.
- Unity and Generosity parents yield an offspring with both virtues.
- Mercy and Modesty parents yield an offspring with both virtues.
- Honesty and Enthusiasm parents yield an offspring with both virtues.
- Service and Gentleness parents yield an offspring with both virtues.
- Courage and Justice parents yield an offspring with both virtues.
In a coming episode, you will meet the offspring of two Divine Spirits, who become emissaries from eRada to our planet, Earth, bringing these magical truffles as gifts to our world.
You will also witness the role of the ‘Old Souls’ sent to teach the males the wisdom of life.
And you will see the unusual method of transport of males around eRada!
Hang on from more on the disc …
