  • News had drifted on the wind of many minds that this was to be an
    Occasion of great importance. For it was said by some that Earth City
    Had somehow uncovered a single time sleeper from the time before

    Although the cryptic writings upon his tomb were now faded beyond
    Decipherable reading, it was said, by the disembodied members of the
    Ruling kind, that the entombed was from that time on Earth before the
    City stretched its metal web from pole to pole leaving green things only
    In the wells of immortal minds

    Upon the third revolution after its arrival, the tomb that slept without
    Life was removed for inspection. The day was programmed for a clear dome
    Above, with a mild breeze wafting from the central weather post, below
    Throngs of class three occupants were gathering from various sectors to
    Observe the opening, as per standard procedure, their data input
    Stations were fed appropriate propaganda so that their reports would
    Coincide with what the rulers had predetermined

    And so it was upon that day of opening, his spirit did appear and confuse
    Once again. It was evident to all that what lay within was not of mortal
    Composure. Thoughts emanating from deep within its dimensionless cave
    Conveyed this belief to all within the medi-dome.

    What is this apparition now amongst our kind?

    Quickly thereafter, all pressure was released from within the stillness.
    Earth City, unknowingly at that time, was about to enter a new phase of
    Its existence

    Violent quaking began to shake the towers of sector 63, manifestations
    Of melting speed its wings over the structure until once again, ancient
    Soil kissed the sky

    And the beginning of the end swept all that was into its eternal grasp
