Ursulimum

Part of New-Media Project
A new buried futuristic history is recovered 88 years from now, under the old city. A mysterious young boy discovers unknown architectural spaces and patterns that lay buried underneath the old city of Jerusalem.
Vast layers of underground interiors unfold through huge architectural shrines built by an unknown force or machine. The Third Temple which is known to never have been built, is possibly found, built in secrecy, in the form of a particle accelerator. Clearly built by advanced machines or aliens, these spaces employ an advanced system of data reproduction. Illusive hovering lights, mutated and endless interiors, and nano relics are now all abandoned. Through a breach in the Well of Souls under The Temple Mount, a small explorer, possibly a modern day Seraph, travels deep underground into the magnetic force fields into an estranged reality. A city called Ursulimum is the first reference to Jerusalem in ancient Egyptian records in 1330 BCE. The oldest part of the city was settled in the 4th millennium BCE making Jerusalem one of the oldest cities in the world. During its long history, the city has been destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times. When new emperors conquered the city, they built streets on top of the existing ones. Layers and levels of undiscovered quarters still remain buried to this day.
