Searching the Amazon jungle for ancient ruins, an archaeologist shares a meal with the elders of an isolated village. They reveal an oddity that he realizes is so much more. The artifact shouldn’t even exist. It is a perfect ruby, resembling a modern aircraft. Digger begins a journey that could change how humanity will forever see themselves and answer the question, why are we here.
“Field of Orbs” chronicles the work of Digger and his wife Sharon on their journey into the Amazon jungle to discover the secret behind the ancient artifact. Every test they run only returns unbelievable results and even more questions. Was the artifact created by an ancient civilization that perished, leaving no other trace? Could it be a replica of an aircraft possibly flown by ancient alien visitors? Do other, even more fascinating, artifacts exist? How will the world outside the jungle react to their discovery?
This is a world where citizens have confidence in their origins, their government, their technologies and their future. Having abundant energy, readily available resources and advancing knowledge, everyone is empowered to rise above routine survival to vigorously thrive. Every citizen enjoys the benefits of their culture’s triumphs.
However, beneath the gleaming surface of this civilization’s accomplishments, their world is dying. Exploitation of the resources that created their utopia is killing it, along with the life that so utterly depends on the crumbling environment. With all their knowledge, the citizens are ignoring an important truth. If any law of life is unbreakable, it is that everything dies.
David Banks knows this law all too well. Having climbed from geek to industrialist on eco-friendly technology he learned how to move mountains. Overnight, his entire empire is threatened by a mountain he can’t move. He is reluctantly thrust into an uncomfortable situation as one of only two people who know of his planet’s true demise. He and his friends join in their altruistic effort to save the world and prove the power in the one unique trait to humans, unity.
They take charge of the lives of themselves and their planet. They selflessly apply their resources, skills and tireless effort and do what is responsible for the many. In the end, they are an example of what altruism, focus, determination and guts can accomplish in the face of hopelessness and evil intent.
Under incredible demands from the outside world, the mystery of the artifact is slowly yielding to Digger’s pressure to understand. Their exploration is done in secret for many years. But, as the archeologists make increasingly confusing and important discoveries, they draw more attention. Some of the attention, from global media, is good, but the attention from local paramilitary pirates turns deadly.
Worse, their work isn’t in a total vacuum. Their world continues to move on and the multitude of issues on a global level could eclipse the discovery that will change everything they know about themselves and the universe.
Digger and Sharon must walk a fine line between discovery, understanding and revelation. They must solve the mystery of the “Field of Orbs” then reveal its meaning to their world before all is lost.
