The people of “Space” believe they live in a hollow pocket in an otherwise solid universe. They are tunneling through this solid universe following a golden path that will lead them to the fabled “Nirvana” – a world of infinite space and light. When they put their gold in the “Gods Chamber” as an offering to the gods, they are rewarded with food.
The people on the surface, who are “in the know” see that these are simply brainwashed miners unknowingly working for a secret mining company. They are Slaves – Gold Slaves.
Eventually, two of the miners accidentally find a way to the surface and to freedom from their underground trap.
