Crim being confused by our human weirdnessCrim can only stare at what is surely a dream.
Pillaring towers, “skyscrapers” they’re called, rise thousands of feet into the air, like giant teeth trying to bite the clouds. Buildings like this existed on Laniatla, but only a few, made by richer towns to boast about their wealth and power. Here they are routine, built to house more people than grains of sands on their beaches.
Humankind is decades, perhaps even centuries behind the Kuarosopa in terms of technology and science, but they wield power on a scale unimaginable to anyone else.
Our protagonist asks some locals how many people live in this massive city. “I dunno, something like twenny million I think. One of the biggest cities out ‘er, though I’ve heard of someplace with twice as many,” one replies, walking away despite not having been paid for the info.
Crim has to sit down to digest these figures. Twenty million people? And another one with twice that?! Even if the next largest city
Bonobos, an endangered species - spread awarenessI found this video recently:
It really saddens me and makes me angry that people kill them for fun.
Bonobos are the only apes that don't kill.
That's really sad that a supposedly superior being (= us) kills for nothing, but they don't...
Prehistory - Neogene period - HominidsThe Neogene period is the last big period of Earth's history, the one we live in today. It spans from from 23.03 mya (million years ago) to today. (link)
In the Neogene period there is (in chronological order): the Miocene epoch (the African-Arabian tectonic plate joined to Asia); the Pliocene Epoch (appearance of Ardi - but maybe they appeared a little bit before, at the end of the Miocene epoch(???) - not sure); the Quaternary Period; the Pleistocene Epoch (the Ice Age + the different homos: homo habilis, homo erectus, homo sapiens...); and finally the Holocene Epoch (the one we live in today / Development of agriculture and domesticated animals).
The Miocene epoch (23.03 to 5.3 mya) is said to be the golden age of mammals. Here is an overview of this epoch:
The Miocene epoch is the first epoch of the Neogene period. It's interesting because it's when ou
GyrionMy love, as pale as fallen snow
His eyes azure as winter skies
Yet summer’s warmth within him lies
A flame that shall forever glow
Joy is in my love’s embrace
And tender is his gentle heart
Our souls entwined shall never part
Our ardor only grows apace
Euphoria, my lover’s kiss
He lifts me to Aetherius
Impassioned and delirious
His every touch a soaring bliss
Though miles and years may take their toll
I give my life into his care
And precious is the time we share —
My Gyrion, my heart, my soul.
