History of the Urt
At best, history ‘began’ to be ‘recorded’ around five thousand years ago. Before that though, nothing happened that was worthy of being noted down on paper. Geologic history and ice cores note several thousand cycles of fire and ice ages, just as many periods of extinction, but for the most part they will show a history without humanity in the picture. We just gave it all a name. Language is our bane. Before man, everything was simply life and death. As the earth swung through the stars, which were also born lived and died, life sprang up, had its chance to get somewhere, beginning simply with amino acids combining to form single cells which evolved and evolved and evolved and evolved. It reached many stages, goop, sludge, fungi, plants, animals, and unlike any other that has made it man rode in on a high fucking horse to conquer the whole thing. Actually that is only the hope of some men who play the whole thing like a chess game with six billion epiphenomenal peons to run through slaughterhouses which a majority of the world’s population call a life, barely surviving, and even if they do, it is in agony. They will not be remembered in the history books, they are the proverbial unwritten losers. Sixty five million years ago, dinosaurs lost, but even natural science, biology, tells us that there are currently vestiges of dinosaur life, such as alligators, crocodiles, sharks, and such. Man came into the picture one hundred and fifty thousand years ago, and evolved to current standards. Some things survived sixty five million years to current standards as animals, if man could come about in one hundred and fifty thousand years, could not some race of shape shifting lizards be able to evolve through very selective breeding techniques. A race of responsible lizards who have somehow taken the reigns from man when things got too out of hand, like standing on the gas pedal to destroy a deer instead of letting it destroy your car. I’m not saying I believe that a race of lizard people rule the world, but if history shows anything it is that humans really know nothing about anything, so a race of lizard men is not necessarily impossible, albeit improbable. The real point is that we’re new folks on the block, and history lies by saying that something happens on time. Nothing ever does, everything occurs in tides, build ups, peaks, and declines. The growth of the population of the earth is ever increasing even as people starve as billion people nations upgrade and industrialize, demanding better food, transportation, and living. The build up. Millions of baby boomers retire looking for social security and money in IRAs which banks may not be able to come up with, as millions of their children replace them to try and make more money than their parents did, and want the same things as their friends overseas. The peak. Meanwhile the earth is heating up, as the seas get more acidic and sterilize over the next forty years, and chunks of ice caps disappear. The decline. Life came from the ocean, and now it will end there, and, if science isn’t full of shit, the rest of us will be gone too, losers.
