When the inventor Perry fires up his burrowing prospector, it runs out of control, plunging him with his young protégé into the centre of the earth. There, instead of being destroyed by the molten lava they expect to find, they discover an inner world of bizarre savagery and unearthly beauty.
That in that country if a man falls into ill health, or catches any disorder, or fails bodily in any way before he is seventy years old, he is tried before a jury of his countrymen, and if convicted is held up to public scorn and sentenced more or less severely as the case may be.
This allegorical tale explores the limitations of human perceptions of reality. The author advocates the need for openness and humility in pursuit of spiritual growth and offers profound insights into the inner world of the spiritual dimension.
