I this map to be the truth. I moved through the sky in trucks made to move through the sky the "jets" I was moved to various globes. The globe where I am now is in question. There are a number of solar system maps. There an infinite number of stars or suns. Each star or sun has a number of globes or worlds or planets. I am not seeing the stars or suns in the night sky where I am now. I see a reminder of another world or globe or planet with the name the "MOON" I was there. It is only a few hours reached with one of these trucks or jets that move through the sky. The temperatures there are freezing. No trees grow there in the soil naturally without controlling the freezing temperatures. The water always freezes all year. Not the way it is on this one globe or world or planet. I was told this globes name is "Mercury". There are a few worlds or globes or plantes in this one solar system. "EARTH" is not one of them. This globe or world or planet is not the original one of our species. My species being a male or a female or being a man or a woman. We never were one species. There never was one world or one globe or one planet where the species evolved or orginated or grew originally. There always was a few worlds, plantes, globes, hemispheres where we grew. The number of similar species have shared interests such as having to have trees that produce nutrients to survive, having to have water, having to have healthy temperatures. We also need the flowers to survive. I see the flowers grow and they are not all the same species. I see the trees grow they are not all the same species. All the trees need water. There is an unknown number of globes, planets, hemispheres, worlds. Not one globe or hemisphere grew the trees and the flowers. Then with the jets or trucks that move through the sky the ways I have moved a number of days in my life the trees moved the flowers moved the soil moved the water moved. One globe I found myself moving to through the sky had all this water. No one knew was the water moved there with the jets through the solar systems or was the water there originally. I know the water on this globe being "Mercury" in my maps of the solar systems had water here naturally when our species was not here. Now there are 2 waters. Water moved here in jets and water found here. The future of our species on this planet, world, globe is not very positive or good.
