Man gazes at the heavens and dreams of exploring the universe,
hoping to discover other worlds as wondrous as our own. Are we
alone in this vast universe? Perhaps the answers we are seeking
already exist here on Earth, waiting for us to unravel them. Did
life begin uniquely here on Earth or was it enhanced by Beings from
beyond, perhaps travelers from a distant star? Jake removed the
mysterious silver cloth from the chest, unfolding it carefully and
placing it on the table. Without thinking, he removed the crystal
skull from the chest and placed it on top of the silver cloth, a
simple gesture that would change his and Bill's lives forever Does
the Mayan calendar, ending in the year 2012, signify the end of
Earth or the return of the Arks and a new beginning? CHAPTER ONE
The Adventure Begins Mexico The midday sun beats down without mercy
for anything in its path as Jake reaches for the faded bandanna
hanging from his back pocket. He removes his hat and wipes the
sweat and dust from his face. Surveying the surrounding panorama,
he glances back at the mountains and neighboring hills. Leaning
over he pats Grey, his mule on the head, Well boy that's it, he
exclaims throwing his hands up in disgust, I've had it, I think
it's time to call it quits, time to go home and regroup. There's
sure no gold in this godforsaken part of Mexico, he mumbles as he
reaches over, takes hold of Grey's reins and turns him around to
head for home. Suddenly the earth begins to tremble. It roils
beneath his feet knocking him to the ground, rocks and dirt falling
everywhere. Run Grey, Run Jake screams grabbing Grey's reins again,
this time holding on tighter for support. He stumbles to his feet
and races for a clearing on the mesa ahead determined to hold his
footing against the jolting earth with Grey right at his side. They
make it to the mesa as the tremor stops abruptly, just as it had
begun. Only the sound of dislodged rocks crashing against dry
mesquite disturbs the air. Jake wraps his arms around Grey's neck
and gives him a big squeeze, That was a close one boy, but we made
it. Breathless from the run Jake turns to look back up at the
mountain. Behind the veil of dissipating dust, Jake spots the
jagged jaws of a fresh cavern. My God Grey, look at that, he yells,
pointing about half way up the mountain, as if Grey would actually
look. That opening wasn't there before. He shakes his head in
disbelief, wipes the sweat from his brow again with the worn
bandanna and considers his options. Let's go see what we can find,
he says excitedly as he heads back up the mountain with Grey
following close behind. Wait Grey, he shouts, stopping so fast Grey
bumps into him, First I need to get an exact reading of where we
are. Pulling out his handy GPS, he jots down the information in his
logbook. OK, boy let's start climbing, gotta see what's in that
cave, Grabbing Grey's reins loosely again they start scrambling
back up the mountain. Glad to see most of the dust has settled, he
approaches the cavern wondering how big the cave might actually be.
He can feel the adrenaline pumping and the excitement growing with
every step. As he enters the cave, he's amazed at how large it is.
It looks more like a finished room or chamber, not like any cave he
has ever explored. The walls appear to have been carved out of the
rock by someone or something other than Mother Nature. They are
extremely smooth and though the earthquake has just reopened the
cave, the air inside is not stale or dank. As he looks around, he's
shocked by what he sees. Sitting there in the middle of the cave is
a strange but beautiful container, a box with hieroglyphics
covering its entire surface. At first glance the box looks like its
glowing but as he approaches it he realizes its the sunlight coming
in through the front of the cave bouncing off the box giving the
illusion of a glow. Jake's puzzled by the look of the box. My God
