I guess we all assumed it would be us that did each other in, some war or conflict that would no doubt lead to nukes blanketing the earth. Talking heads on the left and right would spout blame and point fingers, experts would analyze and come to conclusions and then well…
It wasn’t us at all, human arrogance at its finest. We assumed that because of our place in the world, the universe… that we were our greatest threat and that we were without equal.
Everything was explained up until now, we knew why the sun would rise, and we knew why there were seasons. We could explain and give reason for the moon and stars; we understood the weather and catalogued every creature that lived and died on the planet we shared. We modified food, ecosystems and even ourselves, we even figured out how to create life.
We created technology that linked us in ways never thought possible only to have it distance us more than any ocean could. Everything became faster, smarter, better and more efficient, we knew what was reality, what was possible and impossible. Somewhere along the way we gave explanation to thought, consciousness, the heavens and our own creation. It was then that wise men and women placed God in the basket of fantasy along with Santa Clause, the tooth fairy and the monster under the bed.
Everything had an explanation until now… until them.
