Seeing Dreams Come True


by Richard Kieninger



Forty-five years ago, when I was a young college student, Dr. White pointed me in a direction I could not fully appreciate at the time—he charged me with the job of beginning a university that would truly inspire students and provide valuable information for making their lives more fruitful and culturally richer. About that same time I was also granted a vision in a dream concerning a scene of great construction activity that was explained by Dr. White as being on an island in the Pacific Ocean preliminary to establishing the Nation of God. These two points—the university and construction of the island—have consolidated during the past month into a workable plan.


I offered to the country that has sovereignty over the island, which was long ago selected by the Brotherhoods, a plan to construct and operate an international university where people from third-world nations can come to learn soft technologies appropriate to their needs for cheap energy sources and better ways to grow food in this era of burgeoning populations and declining standards of living everywhere. Proven, alternative technologies have arisen around the world, but they are rarely developed for actual use by people because they would be in competition with already established systems of doing things. Administrators of the country that owns the island have decided that my proposal is feasible and desirable, and they have offered to donate the land on which to build this envisioned university and the city needed to house the students, teachers, and support personnel to operate this large-scale undertaking. Within a year or so, after surveying and planning have been finished, contractors and builders from around the world will need engineers and construction tradesmen to live on the island and help build the city. We will immediately need wharves, roads, sewer and water systems, a solar electric generating plant, and apartments and homes for the workers who will be living there for years to come. Services of all sorts will need to be supplied for this wide array of personnel and their families—hospital, school, laundry, repairmen and the wide range of stores and offices that are part of every city.


My procurement of the island for this project was scheduled for the summer of 1986—the year that the trustees of The Stelle Group confiscated the money in the original Philadelphia Fund for other uses. So it was not until 1988 that I was able on my own to initiate negotiations through international lawyers with the officials of the country that owns the island. Now that I am at last ready to proceed, the time remaining to accomplish this task is short indeed. Over the past twenty-five years many people joined The Stelle Group and The Adelphi Organization to help with this inspirational project and advance themselves in preparation for their part in it. But the waiting was long and, for many, too hard and seemingly endless. Members of The Stelle Group and The Adelphi Organization, who were attracted to the vision given me by my Teachers, later evolved their own easier visions and either went elsewhere or took over for their own use those assets that had been accumulated for the Brotherhoods’ Work. Fortunately, there are members of The Adelphi Organization who have stuck it out and kept working for the original vision. At this point, the development of the island represents the beginning of the fulfillment of thousands of years of planning and toil of countless Egos who laid the path before us. And the government officials who now endorse the university project on their island have probably been brought to enthusiastic acceptance through their behind-the-scenes development by members of the Brotherhoods.


I doubt their acceptance of the vision was brought about merely by the brilliance of my representatives or alone by the elements of my proposal.


The island in its present state consists entirely of rock and sand, but the water and air are marvelously pure. By means of the techniques we will be teaching, we intend to transform the campus and city into a garden spot. Thus, it will be proof to third-world countries that such a seeming miracle can be brought into actuality without huge expenditures of money. But it will require the sustained volunteer efforts of renters and owners of homes to develop and maintain it. The students of the university will be required to put hands-on effort into keeping their campus a place of beauty and thereby learn first hand how to transmit this knowledge to their own countries. Here people will learn hydroponics farming, protection of their local ecologies, and maintenance of marine resources. Lighter-than-air transports will be developed to move large amounts of freight and passengers quickly and cheaply to and from the island with very little fuel or the need of an expensive airport. The remote location of the island will protect the students and residents from drug dealing and use. I cannot as yet reveal the name of the island or its location until certain documents have been signed and ratified next year, but I can say that it has a semi-tropical climate, and it is largely mountainous.


The resources needed to bring about this project are rather daunting, but I have learned that when a project actually begins to move and gains momentum, the money and skilled people arrive at appropriate times. At no time will we borrow money. Interest payments have proven to be the undoing of all too many countries and businesses. Therefore, we will rely solely on donations and grants. The eventual cost of this endeavor will be about five billion dollars; but I cannot imagine a more worthy and important undertaking, and there will be many who will agree. Personally, I find this exciting. I suppose you too may well take part in making this dream come true and live and work there.
