former things passed away
Beautiful animation. All to often drowned post apocalyptic worlds concentrate on the ‘ruins’ left by the passing of mankind. [Spielberg’s AI – flooded Manhattan, Waterworld – submerged Denver, …] rather than the return to nature that would ensue given the removal of pesky humans.
Well, I think Bill’s got a point. If you look at the whole life of the planet, we… you know, man, has only been around for a few blinks of an eye. So if the infection wipes us all out, that is a return to normality.
