The Zortixian government had distributed over 100 pamphlets throughout the globe attempting to explain Zortixian history, customs and just about any fact that they thought would make Earthlings comfortable with Zortixians. It was now time to invite a small group of Earthlings to Zortixia and let them see for themselves what Zortixia was all about. To start with 20 Montrealer’s were to go up up and away to Zortixia. Squid placed a couple of small ads in the classified section of three Montreal newspapers looking for humans to make the trip for a cultural visit. Many people had a chuckle over what they saw as a sham. Aliens did not exist! Yet there were many that were awed by the Zortixian “cure liquid” for cancer and gave serious thought to Zortixia existing. Squid managed to get 10 mutants and 10 citizens of Montreal from all walks of life such as priests, students, lawyers, doctors and journalists. They vanished from Earth and three weeks later reappeared with incredible stories about Zortixia. Overall their initial stories were not taken seriously but credibility began to snowball as the recounters of these stories had credibility. Soon thousands of people were sending requests for trips. Extra spacecraft were added to meet demand. As the Zortixians confiscated all cameras hard physical evidence was impossible to show the doubters. The reasoning behind this was if photos were taken some countries might try to imitate Zortixian technology and use it to gain some world economic advantage.
A prominent Canadian psychologist called these visits part of a growing problem of mass insanity just as some Zortixians had feared. The mutants kidnapped her sending her to Zortixia. Her tune changed when she returned. As the masses spoke up and enrolled in local Zortixian cultural centres governments throughout the world began to perk up their ears. After several months the Zortixians had welcomed Canadians, Americans, East Germans and Italians. Earthlings were gradually coming to the realization that Zortixia did in fact exist. It was a gradual and gentle process. The Zortixians were focusing on hosting over a million Earthlings but it would take what it would take!
