My name is Paolo Raphael and I am the writer and illustrator of the Earth Tykes Transmissions.
I should firstly say, that I feel like I am completing a mission here on Earth, by creating and publishing the Earth Tykes stories. The books are presented as a series of transmissions from a people hidden from humanity; like a lost tribe, but with advanced technology. My initial idea was derived from a documentary I saw about a tribe called the Kogi from Columbia, South America. The Kogi came down from their hidden mountain kingdom to teach the city dwellers, who they called their 'younger Brothers', about the serious problems caused by environmental destruction. They knew it was time to communicate with the rest of humanity, because the ice on their sacred mountain was beginning to melt. The Kogi understood the relationship between their local environmental problems and those of the world at large; the microcosm and the macrocosm, they knew how to read the signs. Such analysis had been overlooked by western scientists.
As I began to create the ideas for the Earth Tykes books, I recognized, as the Kogi did, the necessity to write something about the awakening of human consciousness, to re-establish an education system that was firstly, actually relevant to the planetary intergalactic situation we are in, but also, to stimulate the human imagination. It is with our imagination and our feelings that we create the future, so if our future is presented as dire debt slavery as opposed to an open canvas for human creativity, then this is not good at all. Our world leaders have let us down in every conceivable way, with one or two exceptions of course.
The transition of humanity from terrestrial to extraterrestrial with the ideal of bringing heaven down to Earth, is how we should now envisage ourselves, collectively as a species. The way is open for change
and a new financial system is about to be introduced [writing Dec 2016]. I wanted the Earth Tykes stories to be educational in an enjoyable way, to be a part of the future of things, not just more of the same 'safe' material; life isn't safe, it is fabulously dangerous and so it should be, it keeps us on our toes. The more options we have, the greater the possibility for mistakes, but that is a part of life also. The important thing is to evolve by our own efforts and our own learning processes. This cannot happen if corporate monsters control everything. Each culture should be celebrating its individuality under the common consensus, that we all work together as humanity. We should explore the uniqueness of other cultures around the world, then absorb their essence into our souls, this is the way. The European Union for example, needs a major rethink; the French people would have told you that from the start, now everyone is saying it.
Perhaps the motivation behind the Earth Tykes Transmissions is best summed up by the following devotion that I have placed at the beginning of every book:
"Dedicated to the future, the human imagination, and the freedom to be creative in any way we choose, for the benefit of our world."
The Earth Tykes transmissions are lavishly illustrated books that take you on a journey of imaginative self discovery. There are journeys into space, into the inner Earth and into our dreamworlds and beyond.
Which age group? The original idea was to write for grown-up coffee table reading, something with a little humour but with some interesting ideas, spiritually, ethically and scientifically. However, as a kid I would have loved these books despite the advanced jargon, it's a great way to learn. You be the judge.

Links relating to creativity websites that we feel in spirit at least, are associated with Paolo Raphael's dedication to the future and the human imagination.
The Earth Tykes Project is primarily a vehicle for the re-education of humanity; it is not the only one; check the web for the Venus, Sirius and Orion Projects amongst others. WE, as humanity, have to realign our consciousness to facilitate a shift in various new perceptions including time, space and technology, but also the responsibility for freedom. Those who have been given the total freedom to control us have known no bounds of malice and cruelty against humanity and indeed all life, now let us see what we have learned from this. Let's communicate, and switch on ourselves, our consciousness, our creativity.
