Preview

Unarius prepared for an extraterrestrial fleet of spaceships to land in 2001 as prophesied by Uriel. Contrary to the cult stereotype and the notion of mind-controlled members, interviews showed that not everyone expected the realization of the prophecy. After the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center, many thought the incident would prevent the Space Brothers from landing. Members who were disappointed coped by using past-life therapy and channeled messages to explain the reasons why prophecy went unfulfilled.
