Spring, 1963 A.D. ……… New York City, New York, USA

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL SPRING DAY, after a fairly harsh winter, people are glad to be able to be outside … and of course this is New York City, the greatest city on the earth. 24 Hours a day people are outside speaking to each other, even if some of them have a funny accent or sound like they are unhappy with the whole world ....

We move to one of the grammer schools in the city. It is recess time, and the kids are outside to excercise some of their pent-up energy. We see some boys playing basketball and the girls sitting and talking, looking at the boys. But of in a corner of the school yard, all by himself, is a young boy about 7 years old, who is digging in the ground. All of a sudden his fingers touch a soft object, it is some type of very old basket, so he continues digging deeper. Carefully he pulls the basket from the ground and discovers inside some artifacts. These objects appear to be of Native American origin .... some feathers, beads and a strange stone made from quartz crystal ....

This young boy's name is Michael. He feels kind of isolated from the other students, as his family has just moved here from Chicago. Although Chicago and New York are both big cities, it takes awhile to get use to the Big Apple. It is quite apparent, even at this early age, that Michael is quite inquisitive as he wants to know the secrets of the universe (you know the old saying, "Leave no stone unturned" … well Michael literally lives this). Michael has begun his life journey by exploring the mysteries buried in the earth from the past. Michael stares in awe at his find, with his mouth open, quite proud of himself and plans to show his father at the dinner table that night. He puts all the pieces back into the basket and gets ready to head back for the school. Just before he goes, Michael looks into the sky … and ponders who these people were that would use such strange looking instruments …..
