young graduate students Los Anthropolocos (Drs. Lou and Sánchez) would
take the city bus, shovel and picks in hand, to their secret dig site and
would excavate all summer long, lost in the sweetness of science and discovery.
Their notoriety growing with each and every mummy discovered, they finally
received the recognition they so richly deserved and earned
. The discovery
of the lost Colorless was to catapult them into becoming the rock
stars of science.
Photograph of actual dig site in East County San Diego being excavated by
Los Anthropolocos, where they unearthed artifacts from white culture such
as the Manilow LP (artifact #12897, vinyl and cardboard), found with the Shroud
of El Cajón. This was found in the East County of Califas near Dukes
Transmission Repair. The Colorless always buried their dead near transmission
shops. The shroud was used to completely wrap the mummified remains of the
Colorless specimen in a cocoonlike physical state.
capturing and tranquilizing these two magnificent specimens, Los Anthropolocos
were overcome by a combination of euphoria and grief. They understood the
importance of being privileged, figuratively, to travel back to some unspeakable
primordial place. To see and touch ones past is frightening. Los Anthropolocos
walked the Mountains of the West, just north of Whittier, grieving, tormented,
and forlorn. Had they reached the end of their lifes work, searching
for and analyzing the Colorless? And what would become of these godless brutes?
Would they be capable of learning a language beyond their customary grunts,
squeals, and belches? Theses questions caromed off the left banks of their
collective minds. As with lightning and thunder, there was a great burst of
energy and light, then silence. The Captives of Fate World Tour was born.
