In the book, the author indicates that the people of the future fully understood Dienach’s peculiar medical situation, which they called “conscious slide”, and they told Dienach as many things as they could in relation to the historical events that took place between the 21st and 39th century. The only thing they didn’t tell him was the exact story of the 20th century, in case Dienach’s consciousness returned back to his original body and era (as he did) – they believed it would be dangerous to let him know his immediate future and the future of his era in case it disturbed or altered the path of history and his life.
When Dienach awakens from his coma, he finds himself back in 1922, but with an incredible amount of knowledge and information that he learned about during his one year in the future.
Knowing that he doesn’t have much time left, Dienach decides to write a diary, recording whatever he could remember from his amazing experience.
Curiously, Paul Dienach was not an author, poet, or professional writer. Rather, he was an ordinary man who kept a journal, never with the expectation that it would be published and recognized as it has become.
These are the predictions of Paul Dienach for the future of humanity.
2000-2300 A.D. Humanity is still struggling with the problems of overpopulation, ecological destruction of the environment, economic inequalities, wrong monetary system, lack of appropriate nutrition for all people, and local minor wars. People are living in this hastily race for atomic financial survival without time to look for their inner self and spiritual development.
In 2204 A.D. is completed a large colonization of the planet Mars, of 20 million people. But in 2265 A.D. a vast natural destruction kills them all. Never again humanity tries to colonize Mars.
2309 A.D. As the result of accumulated and non-solved problems, another big disaster comes to earth and is the great global war. A great part of the civilization as we know it stops to exist. The destruction hits as an almost extinction mainly of the yellow and black races.
2396 A.D. This great change leads to the final establishment of a Global Parliament on Earth of the Global Union of Nations or States. But this Global Parliament, although it is elected through voting by the nations, is not from politicians or businessmen, but from scientists, technologist, and humanitarian figures. The money as we know it does not exist anymore. The planetary resources are redistributed and are now enough for every person. The overpopulation, the climate, the nutrition, and the ecological problems are solved.
But not entirely the subtle tyranny problem. Life is easy, and people work less and less during their life. The years start counting again with year number 1, the 2396 (as in the time of Jesus Christ). Nevertheless, the Global Government is a form of totalitarianism, and national governments oppose it directly or indirectly for a couple more centuries. People are still with national consciousness and have not developed the planetary consciousness.
Only after 2-5 centuries finally, they did. Although there are not economic inequalities as we knew them, there are still inequalities over control of the level of technology and properties. People are spiritually weak and sluggish. This “peculiar Dark Age era” lasts till 3400.
3382 A.D. A remarkable phenomenon happens in humanity. People one after the other acquire suddenly a new spiritual ability that could be called hyper-vision or hyper-intuition. A direct access to “the great Spiritual Light” or “Direct Knowledge” with extremely powerful and of stunning clarity creative powers. It is also a mutation of the human brain.
3400-4000 A.D. A new “Golden Age” comes in humanity after almost 1,000 years of “dark age”. Now in the Global Government are not any more scientists and technocrats. There the “Universal Creators”. Personalities that combine simultaneously the qualities and abilities of philosopher, artist, scientist, adept, mystic, etc. Everything in the society is free, clothes, house, food, transportation, etc. There is no private property, and the only inequalities are of honor and reputation.
People do not count anymore the success of their lives with the technological and material standards of living, but mainly with their emotional, mental and spiritual development and self-improvement. People work only 2 years in their whole life, between the equivalent of 17 and 19 years. The population of earth is less than a billion people, and there is an abundance of products for a decent living. The laws in the society are radically reduced to very few only, as the negative or criminal intentions of individuals in the society are almost absent.
There are only three kinds of laws:
1) Those referring to the 2-year term of working.
2) Those referring to how traveling traffic and distribution of goods is done.
3) Those referring to the demographic stable size population (control of births).
What a amazing read! Obviously as with anything like this only time will tell, but I can see this being a future that could happen. I can think of many better outcomes, but many worse too.
