Green's Discovery
by R.W. Karp

Astronomer and astrophysicist Sydney Green has been interested in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) since his childhood. Brushed off and pushed aside because few believed he would ever discover extraterrestrial beings, Green is vindicated when two of his graduate students spot an unknown object heading towards Earth. Green soon realizes this object is a small fleet of alien spacecraft. After unsuccessful attempts to communicate and negotiate with the leadership of Earth, the aliens enlist Green’s help. They see in humans qualities that will be beneficial to other planets in the universe, but they cannot allow humans to have contact with those other planets until humans’ baser characteristics have been purged. Change or perish alone. Those are humanity’s choices. With the help of the visitors, as Green calls the aliens, he sets out to cleanse humanity of inequality, the power of the plutocracy, and the desperate circumstances that are the lived experience of over half the Earth’s population. Join Sydney Green as he experiences first-hand the criminals, drug dealers, human traffickers, autocratic leaders, and extreme religious fanatics who are preventing humankind from evolving into a species fit to be part of the Universal Government.

Rick Karp was a high school teacher for 14 years, in business for close to 30 years, and was President of the Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce for 14 years. In 2017, he founded the Yukon Science and Technology Advisory Society (YSTAS) and now works with more than 20 PhD holders and several other researchers. He realized, from discussions with one of YSTAS’s economists that we need to make changes to our economic and social paradigms if our world is to be saved for future generations. Green's Discovery was originally a short story that Karp decided to expand upon to show what we have to do to preserve our world. Now retired, Karp lives in Whitehorse, Yukon. He lost his wife in 2017 and lives on his own.
