It is E23, 23.000 lunar years after the Edorial calendar. Katsura 5 approaches a rough, stormy lonely planet. The group of monk-scientists, the so-called DOGU, YANAKA _E23 travel through time and space in search for their own identity. Near the almost forgotten galactic Milky Way, they had already detected an unidentified signal, which lead them to this planet. In ancient tribal knowledge this planet was called Ea, planet of human. The deciphered signal leads them direct to the coordinates: 35,72670 southern latitude 139,76523 northern latitude These are the coordinates of the unique district of Yanaka in Old Tokyo. Far below the sandy ground, archaeological tools uncover collapsing magnetic waves, waves spreading as far as the galactic streets. The digging technique, “Sign significata terra rastering”, reveals this remarkable find. A tiny, shiny object hidden deep in the soil - pure crystalline - full of fragmented data - nebulous, overlapped and shifted. The extracted information creates a four- dimensional fragment of data-based time and space. This information is disorderly and puzzling. Furthermore, specific analyses are necessary to understand its meaning. Socio-cultural, architectural, climatic and geological information bunched together. Finally, 3 different time sequences are differentiated. Fragmented data from 1959, 2054, 2753
