Robert Vicino first envisioned the need for Vivos in 1980.  He had a gut wrenching feeling that something was going to happen and the only solution was with an underground shelter complex. His first thought was to find an abandoned mine shaft that could be converted to accommodate up to 1,000 people for a year. Over the years, he realized that was more difficult to locate and construct than expected. The current Vivos spoke and hub design was born out of the need to have as many complexes spread across the country as possible, at the lowest cost, to make it affordable for co-ownership.

The plan evolved over the years and became formalized in 2008 as many people expressed their concerns about major earth changes, economic and political events that are now creating a major risk for our world.  While 2012 came and went without incident on December 21, 2012, the catastrophes and threats to mankind have not dissipated.  Nobody really knows for certain what the Mayans may have foreseen, if anything.  But the prophecies of the Bible, and great prophets through the ages, all seem to point to this age in our time that these epic events will be realized. 

The Vivos project is truly an enormous undertaking, now with the hopes to accommodate 1 in every 1 million people on Earth!
