The Spirit II is a sequel to The Spirit. It contains a bit of philosophy, a bit of allegory, and a lot of weirdness.
Homo sapiens existed on Mother Earth for 150,000 years until those with no vestige of goodness were destroyed by their own evilness. Those remaining, who contained some bit of virtue, made the exodus to New Earth, leaving Mother Earth barren of humans.
After another 150,000 years, these humans returned to Mother Earth. The Spirit II tells what they found.
The lesson of The Spirit II is that there is no physical Perfect Place in the universe. Instead, it is within each of our souls. We have either the Garden of Eden or the Pit of Evil within us.
