From a galaxy so remote it is unknown to us, a light brighter than a billion suns is guided through the shaft of a wormhole, fading in intensity through the expanding cosmos, but not before some of it – however faintly – reaches earth.
A computer at the observatory registered the faint signature of light, but no one could have fathomed that it had triggered something that had been lying dormant in the desert of Chaco Canyon for 1200 years.
In the summer of 1996 two college students innocently stumble upon an otherworldly artifact while hiking in northern New Mexico near an ancient archeological site, called Chaco Canyon (click right images).
Through a chain of mysterious events, this artifact ends up in the
hands of the ACIO, an ultra-secret, unacknowledged
department of the National Security Agency (NSA) responsible
for reverse-engineering recovered extraterrestrial technologies.
This leads the ACIO to assume it is not an
isolated artifact randomly discovered, but rather part of a larger
configuration of artifacts – possibly leading to a spacecraft.
A helix-shaped corridor spirals up through the rock with 23 chambers jutting out at ten-meter intervals. This amazing discovery is initially thought to be an extraterrestrial time capsule left behind by an alien race (click left image).
Each chamber contains an enigmatic wall painting and an impenetrable technology artifact (click below-left image). In the uppermost chamber, the scientists uncover an optical disc presumably holding the information about the site's creators and their purpose.
After considerable effort to access the optical disc, the ACIO team, led by Jamisson Neruda, finally succeeds, and determines that the creators of the site call themselves WingMakers.
Over 8,000 pages of philosophy, poetry, music, genetics, sub-dimensional equations, and cosmology are contained within the disc.
The WingMakers are thought to be representatives of the Central Race, the most ancient race of beings in the universe, and the legendary Creator Gods of life on all of the other galaxies.
They are the genetic caretakers of the universe, once thought to be Gods when they interacted with the human race in eons past.
These seven sites are linked together through some mysterious means, and the information contained within the sites is for an uncertain purpose.
The WingMakers story chronicles the hero’s journey of Dr. Neruda and one of his associates (Samantha Folten) as they gradually become sympathizers of the WingMakers’ purpose and want to make the Ancient Arrow material available to the broader scientific community.
The leadership of the ACIO
is squarely at odds with making such a disclosure, fearing that the ACIO’s agenda and hidden power will vanish as a result.
Given no other options, and with grave danger to himself, Neruda defects from the ACIO, taking materials from the
Ancient Arrow site with him.
In the year 2011, a synthetic, soulless race of aliens known as the Animus (click image right) are foreseen by the WingMakers to detect earth.
have stored the requisite knowledge inside the 7 sites to help
humanity prevent the forceful Animus invasion. Neruda
believes he must uncover this knowledge ahead of the ACIO
and share it with the world’s scientific community before the
ACIO can capture him and hide or destroy the
WingMakers’ sites. And most importantly, all of this must be
done in time to repel the Animus from earth.
Together, they release the artifacts and selected decoded materials from the Ancient Arrow site over the Internet on November 23, 1998.
Additional Background on The Wingmakers
An organization that is unacknowledged within the NSA is formed in the 1940s with the sole purpose to reverse-engineer recovered extraterrestrial technologies and apply them for military or secret government purposes.
Insiders know this organization as the Advanced Contact Intelligence Organization (ACIO). The ACIO’s secondary objective is to provide first contact to any extraterrestrial race on behalf of the American government.
The ACIO is led by a renegade genius known simply as Fifteen (emblematic of his security clearance, which, in the case of the ACIO, possesses 15 discrete levels).
Fifteen has assembled a world-class team of scientists, largely drawn from government weapons laboratories and university research projects. In the 1960s Fifteen became one of the first humans to interact with a race of extraterrestrials known as the Corteum.
The Corteum (click image left) prove to be interested in a mutually beneficial relationship with humans, but are shunned by high government officials who are afraid that the Corteum’s presence would become explicit to the world and unsettle economic and military balance.
Fifteen engineers a cover story for the Corteum that leads his superiors in the NSA to believe the Corteum have permanently left.
However, Fifteen invites the Corteum to become a secret partner of the ACIO.
In preparation for this partnership, Fifteen anoints his most
trusted Directors of the ACIO as founding members of a new
organization called the Labyrinth Group.
underground base is created adjacent to the ACIO in order to
the Corteum and the joint laboratory that will develop Blank Slate Technology (BST) -

near Palm Springs, California, this unusual joint venture sets off
create an interactive time travel technology that will
enable the Labyrinth Group and the Corteum to surgically modify
time-based events with the ability to return to present time
Later, one of his directors in charge of Human Technologies developed a means to amplify a specific psychic capability known as Remote Viewing. Using this technology, Fifteen confirmed the ancient prophecy of the Animus.
An essential and urgent
application of BST was uncovered: divert the Animus from Earth.
The Corteum hope to be able to use BST to reverse the death of their
planet’s atmosphere. In addition, they also desire to avoid
detection by the Animus.
The Discovery of The WingMakers
In 1997 something unpredictable happened that would change the complexion of the Advanced Contact Intelligence Organization (ACIO) forever. In the 23rd, or apex chamber of the Ancient Arrow site, an optical disc, presumed to contain data from the creators of the site, was decoded.
The ACIO had taken possession of all of the artifacts
and performed an in-depth analysis of the chamber paintings.
Neruda is tasked with discovering the artifacts’ purpose and any
possible applications its technologies could have for BST.
To Fifteen and his Directors, if the WingMakers
are a faction of
the Central Race, they would be a very powerful group
with very advanced technology – perhaps superior to anything the ACIO has uncovered before. According to the Corteum, the Central Race is the eldest race in the universe.
They are master geneticists who seed the life-bearing planets in a
galaxy with the higher life forms, including humans. In each sector
of a galaxy, they create a genetic library that they draw from in
order to develop soul carriers.
Their purpose, according to the Corteum, was to learn how to become soul carriers like human beings.
The Animus are a powerful, subtle, purposeful and
synthetic race whose purpose was not to destroy
planets or even colonize them, but rather they were seeking a way to
become human by virtue of having a soul or spiritual essence within
their body. They wanted to become part of the universe matrix of
life forms because they knew that without a soul, they would be
quarantined from the higher dimensions of the universe.
Confusing matters was the
the WingMakers’ Ancient Arrow site and Samantha’s
assertion that there were six additional sites on the planet
yet to be discovered. Unbeknownst to the ACIO, these
seven sites contain an amazing array of information, ranging from
particle physics to cosmological breakthroughs.
Moreover, this same content required a “grand collaboration” among the world’s scientists, so it couldn’t be held secretively within the ACIO if it were to have its intended effect.
The idea of sharing the WingMakers’ materials with the world’s scientific community meant that the Labyrinth Group and ACIO could no longer enjoy their exclusive access to the world’s most sophisticated technologies, which, in the opinion of Fifteen, was vital in order to develop BST.
Neruda, knowing of these conflicting views, gradually became
loyal to the WingMakers and felt strongly that the
the Ancient Arrow site should be shared with the public,
as prescribed by
the WingMakers. This ideological split was the cause
Neruda’s defection from the ACIO.
