Inheritors of The Earth by Gordon Eklund and Poul Anderson – book review

There are three types of people on the planet:
The Robots, the Superiors, and the Inheritors.
The NPCs, the HUMANS, and the ELITE
The zombies, the humans, and the Orcs
The normies, the humans, and the cave beast.
The Edomites, the humans, and the Amolokites.
The Gentiles, the humans, and the Jacobites.

You see how this goes. It’s a fun game. Try it some time.

All Science Fiction is predictive programming. Consider the ongoing exposure of the Inheritors. We are living through the paradigm shift. (Unless you take the vaccine and die.) This story is prophecy. A glimpse into the battle of heaven and earth. Of good and evil. As it is in heaven, is now and forever will be. As above so below.

There is nothing new under the sun. We know about world changing resets and civilization collapse from our ‘history’ books. What we are experiencing right now is nothing less than a world wide paradigm shift.

If you are human, you know what is happening. You know there is nothing that can stop the change. We can only be part of this moment.

Covering your child’s face WILL NOT prevent them from seeing the horror of reality.

Let them see. Let them breathe. DO NOT COVER YOUR CHILD’S MOUTH AND NOSE.

Read a book. If only to distract you from your goddamn screens that are programming you for destruction. Good luck, humans.

Highlight: Ford thought—and most Inheritors agreed—that they must be the children of some awesome extraterrestrial race which, for reasons of its own, had sent seed spores drifting across space. Whether the arrival of these spores on Earth was deliberate could not, of course, be determined; but sometimes Ford had a dream
in which, after conquering Earth, he and the other Inheritors one day looked up
into the sky and saw a fleet of starships coming down to rest; the ships, of
course, carried their ancestors.
