Annotation

Cerebroland is a planet in contact with the Godhead. As a result the people become good. Atro is a planet where everyone is absolutely frank, which is supposed to produce eutopia but creates a dystopia instead. The protagonist also visits the Tarcorned World, where all the nations are at war, Redonia, a world to which an entire nation immigrates to avoid the war, and Nosaer--the Mentator World, which is a eutopia. The Mentator is a "mind-machine" which imbues people with telepathy. 1935 Meyer includes the Mentator. See also 1917 Meyer.
