TLD premise not so far fetched


Recommended Posts

Well, part of it is that I just like science, period. But I will also admit to a fascination with apocalypse scenarios. :P

For me, I think there's some appeal to the idea that the modern world with its often overwhelming complexity many terrible problems and could be wiped away and humanity could start over. Of course, this is very much an escapist fantasy -- in real life such an event would be a nightmare with staggering losses and most people, including myself, would be lucky to live even a few years past it. But there's a sort of delightful optimism to thought that we could build a new, and perhaps better world out of the rubble of the old one.
