December 9, 2010
(From the Book of the Second Exodus, Volume One)

Prologue

This is many stories, but mostly, it is the story of a mother for whose children the time had come to leave the nest.

Humanity's mother was dying. For millennia the Earth had cradled and nurtured the human race, bearing silent witness to its first tentative steps, its urge to run, its endless curiosity, and with great sadness, its propensity to destroy.

When she began to heave her last, humanity looked to the stars, knowing they had to find a new place that they could call home.

This is what happened.
