It was inevitable, for history is always written in blood. The human race has finally unraveled, forcing the survivors into a newly formed sovereign utopia in the center of Africa, called 'The Mainland'. Religion and nationalism have been outlawed, blamed for humanity's self-destruction. For the first time in history, an artificial intelligence is put in charge of internal affairs, unaffected by greed, lust for power or nepotism, while its subject residents are forbidden to use the technologies that plagued their forebears. An archaeological expedition is sent to the dead zones in the north to document the world that once was. Muracius Goodmond, head of the Department for the Study of History Verification, is secretly rushed by his fellow scholars into an isolated dig site. There an ancient document is uncovered, which Goodmond is horrified to learn contradicts objective scientific knowledge. Matters become graver still when he realizes it may determine the future of the regime, and the fate of eleven innocent children. Now the scholars have to face an impossible dilemma: in order to pursue truth, they have to break the law. They have to trust their inferior human minds.
