We, the authors, Paul Amrod and Ellias Aghili are poets that have a similar vision. This vision is reflected in this poem we have created hoping for the periods in time where mankind was enlightened and truly democratic would return for the benefit of all. The two main characters of this poem are two astronauts that are called Captains. Therefore the title “Adventures of Two Captains” was chosen. Billy Meier, the Swiss proponent of communication with extraterrestrials, has collected the philosophy of the Pleaidians who are sending us thought waves through meditation. A female Semjase, who transmits these thoughts, is the name of Billy’s counterpart. This inspired the poets to constantly have conversation with the Pleaidians who care deeply about our success as a relatively new race of beings that have the capability of spiritual ascension.
This exciting project was begun in February of 2016 as a young Persian poet decided to ask a
somewhat older Lebanese-American to collaborate with him on a science fiction adventure poem.
Ellias Aghili with Paul Amrod then began the poem by exchanging five to seven stanzas as verses and
sent Emails from Persia to Germany back and forth and have developed a poem of five chapters
embracing a truly imaginative travel through space on a ship called Black Star in the name
of light against darkness to eventually reach a far off place called Ysá Land. The two Captains are
Orion and the younger protégé Captain A.
Paul engaged himself with a KGB film about extraterrestrials and used named and incidents
which may or may not have occurred. It was an exciting good resource for ideas.
We reached an amazing Five Chapters with 20 Verses a piece describing an incredible exposition through two parallel universes to eventually reach the coveted timeless land of Ysá.
