The end of Earth, the end of us, and the end of the universe
Humanity is obsessed with history. I don’t know why, but for the most part we would much rather lose ourselves in reverie than contemplate the future. Even when we do think of the future, it’s nearly always constrained to our future, usually just a handful of years hence. It is a rare person indeed who thinks of 50 or 100 years in the future — but what about 1,000 years? Or a million years? Or a billion years?
Will humanity still exist? Will the Pyramids of Giza still exist? Will Earth or the Solar System exist?
