"Good morning, Anna and Peter," said Jean-Paul Valdez. "Come on in and have a seat at your learning station so we can begin. We're going to Saturn, today, and we need to get started."

Jean-Paul Valdez was a typical off-world teacher. He had lived on several different satellites and had spent time living on the Moon, on Mars, and on the Earth. His job was to help his students augment their technical education with the socialization process which research had proven was essential to develop healthy and happy children. This required bringing the students together, face to face, with much interpersonal dynamics, since their formal technical education was usually done in their homes via the satellite network. Without the opportunity to communicate with one another, children did not learn to build relationships, and relationship building was a crucial element of learning. Another element of Jean-Paul's job was to help students integrate the lessons they learned to other lessons, and show how their work related to life. This was the learning process that had been perfected over the years.

In the year 2005, a group of United States universities, who called themselves the "Big Ten," partnered with the Microsoft Satellite Network to produce the capability to obtain a university degree anywhere on the planet's surface from any one of their institutions through a "distance learning" virtual process. They were all land grant colleges and in the spirit of teaching the masses, decided it was their fate to teach the masses of the world. It was a giant success beyond anyone's expectations. In fact, by 2025, the increased level of global consciousness changed the face and history of the world. The same Microsoft Satellite Network permitted students on the satellites, the Moon and Mars to learn from the great masters, wherever they are.

In the first twenty years of operation, two billion people on the planet received educations from the "Big Ten" Microsoft Global Educational Satellites, and in the process, adopted the values of peace, prosperity, and freedom for all, around the world. As the general population of the planet became better educated, the world population gradually declined, so that by the year 2067, the population of the planet was again at the levels of the turn of the century. In addition, the people of the planet were so involved in creating value, increasing living standards, and working on the "real" challenges, like eliminating illiteracy and global warming, that war-like conflicts also steadily declined. By 2085, there is almost a total peace on the planet.

One graduate student team in India, in 2022, worked on a way to attack the problem of famine in the world. Using the systems theories of the great American statistician, Dr. W. Edwards Deming, and with some assistance from several corporate partners, they found unique solutions so that famine was almost wiped out through better global management of resources. This required global thinking that integrated non-linear solutions by looking at population control, education, distribution of food, political maneuvering and improved genetic engineering principles as a single complex adaptive system.

Genetic engineering was being explored for its benefits to mankind by many different global teams composed of representatives of all major stakeholders. These teams included students, industry experts, government officials, university scientists, religious leaders, and medical professionals who came together to create mutually acceptable terms for the legislation of this new technology.
