EJ CAJON, Calif. (AP) - In 2001, Carol Robinson and her colleagues from the Unarius Academy of Science will travel to an exotic Caribbean location. There they plan to greet an incoming spaceship from the planet Myton.
So that earthly humans can evolve, Unarius Academy members believe the 1,000 residents of Myton will arrive ready to build a "power tower" -- a massive structure that will generate all the planet's energy.
Unlike the 39 members of the Heaven's Gate cult, members of the Unarius Academy do not advocate suicide. But they believe a spaceship will drop to Earth and help them resurrect the submerged continents of Atlantis and Lemuria.
"The human beings onboard are called Muons," said Ms. Robinson. "They'll be coming to stay."
Charles Spiegel, 76, a former psychology professor at San Diego State University, now directs the Unarius Academy in El Cajon, near San Diego, California.
"The West Coast of the United States used to be the East Coast of the sunken continent Lemuria," Spiegel says. "That's why so many people move out here -- they're lured here in their pre-history."
Spiegel and other academy members insist their beliefs are a science, not a cult or religion. They say they communicate clairvoyantly, allowing members to receive additional details about the 2001 landing from Myton.
The Muons will bring with them an extra spaceship so that earthlings can travel from planet to planet, Ms. Robinson said. "At first they'll just bring one ship, but then they'll bring others."
