are a mysterious lost civilization loosely based on
all the other mysterious lost civilizations. Are they a myth, a half-remembered
ancestral memory, or visualization of a future Utopia? Only you
Step 1: Read the CLEVIAN LEGEND:
The time: 30,000 years ago. The Earth
hangs like a small white marble
infinitude of space. The surface is covered by mile-high ice sheets inhabited only by
wolves and half-human Yetis. It is against this harsh backdrop that the Clevian race
springs into existence.
Composed of people of all colors, shapes, and
the Clevian empire covers all
known land masses. A golden age ensues. Crops are taught to grow
under the direction of
human masters. Huge stones are levitated with the power of the mind.
The languages of
animals and birds are known and spoken.
As the ice sheets retreat, new civilizations arise, based not on Clevian
values, but on tyranny and greed.
At first we send emissaries among
to heal the
sick and impart our arcane knowledge. Too late we realize our mistake. We are mistaken for
magicians and sorcerers. The paramount kings of the ancient world band together against
us in a war that spanned five continents and 100 years of time.
At the war's peak, a band of traitors
sell out the temple to the Romans in exchange for
false promises of peace. The traitors are caught and thrown into the muck at the base of
Mt. Clevis, but by then it is too late. With the temple pulled down and Clevis in
ruins, king AXANDROUS MAHUBIE has no choice but to send his people into hiding.
He tells them: "Then
of Clevis must remain unspoken. Our
Mental Masters will send you forth into the world
with no memory of what you had been. But deep in your mind will be buried one of the
Pieces of Clevis
to hold and preserve.
At a predetermined moment the Piece will stir just enough to transmit itself to your descendents.
"As the ages pass, there
will come times of great darkness. Then will three or four of
the pieces stir and awaken, and their holders rise up to become great statesmen and
geniuses who will avert the crisis.
day will come when the world is once again ready for us. All the Pieces will begin to stir
at once and the Clevians who carry them will be sore troubled. For
they will seek for something,
yet they know not what. They will know the world is wrong, but not yet how
to fix it. They will be drawn together into groups as the Pieces begin to
draw together, and
great innovations and breakthroughs will occur. Even in time of war
will the arts of freedom and peace be practiced anew.
"But this will also be our
time of greatest danger. For through the centuries the OVERLORDS, the
Faceless Ones, descendents of
our ancient enemy, will not sleep, and they ever await our return. They are the great
deceivers, and seek to
enslave Man to their circle of stereotypical rewards, chaining him
to a dim
world stretching through all the eternities and the universes...Eternal war;
eternal fear; eternal greed.... Only the awakening of the Clevians can prevent
this. Therefore let nothing stay the Pieces, when the time
for joining has come.
"When this new day dawns we
will have a new Clevis surpassing even the old. But until that day, let silence
be our watchword, and let the sunset hold our destiny..."
So spoke the king....

Step 3-- the Commentary.
All stories about Utopia expose similar issues: what do we most yearn for?
What do we feel is missing from our modern
All civilizations look back toward a lost golden age. In 3500 BC, Assyrian
stele depict their king bowing before an empty throne, imploring the return of
the wise gods who once ruled over a golden age. The wandering
Israelites had their "Eden"; Plato told us of Atlantis, the Scandinavians
recalled their lost Thule, the Aborigines had their Dreamtime, the Enlightenment thinkers
harkened back to the Noble Savage....
But Utopian ideation is a two-edged sword. Our yearning for the lost paradise is so strong it can
easily be exploited by demagogues. Consider Hitler's "Thousand-year Reich", Stalin's "Worker's
Paradise", or Reagan's "Springtime in
The UTOPIA PROJECT
What if we could collect all the snippets of Utopia together in one place,
collate them, find common elements, then assemble it all into a coherent
whole? We would have for the first time a scientific map of the deepest
human yearnings, of what people really need to feel happy and
By publishing such information, people could begin to create a
realistic utopia right here. The
closer we attain to a realistic Utopia, the less room for demagogues and
dictators to exploit the longing.
Do you want to help? You may be a Clevian yourself without knowing it. Read their story,
then give us your Piece of Clevis....
