It is the year 4022; all of the ancient country of Usa has been buried under many feet of detritus from a catastrophe that occurred back in 1985. Imagine, then, the excitement that Howard Carson, an amateur archeologist at best, experienced when in crossing the perimeter of an abandoned excavation site he felt the ground give way beneath him and found himself at the bottom of a shaft, which, judging from the DO NOT DISTURB sign hanging from an archaic doorknob, was clearly the entrance to a still-sealed burial chamber.

At the end of each performance, as the Great Sign fades into the black abyss of night and the orchestral transcription of the sacred chant plays out its final chord, every member of the emotionally drained audience lights the traditional match of tribute. This moving gesture has also been

Although North America has not given up her secrets easily, a number of significant discoveries have been made. Evidence unearthed at several widely scattered sites indicates that the entire continent was covered by a complex network of gray and black stripes. Until the development of high-altitude

Each inscription represented a different religious sect or point of view and was placed as near as possible to heaven—the traditional home of the North American gods. The level of spiritual rivalry becomes dramatically clear when we realize that shortly before the catastrophe some of the inscriptions reached heights of close to one hundred feet
