Summary (From the publisher):

A fabulous journey through a world 100,000 years from our own, where mankind's deepest aspirations have been fulfilled. War, disease, old age - even poverty - have vanished, replaced by ageless beauty, perfect leisure and the direct transformation of solar energy into every material need...

Astro-mental civilization - in the eleventh cosmic capital year of Virgo:
Where men have already experienced Judgement Day
Where places routinely travel to people who want to visit them
Where old age is unknown, and dying has been replaced by its opposite
Where a universal language makes it impossible to utter threats or insults
Where one giant Worker cheerfully provides all of humanity's wants and needs
Where the crystalline mountain Djebel lights up man's knowledge into himself and into the farthest reaches of space

A civilization as near-perfect - yet as far from perfection - as the astonishing men and women who inhabit it...
