Mind TransferAn awesome little piece that really drives home the alienness of ‘the other’

from The 21-Second God,

This may not be the most biologically accurate piece, but I think it’s important to recognize that the experience of being a non-human organism is probably fundamentally different from that of a human.




Alien Easter Feels

cd9598e46ffab207473e7772ce8e2fe0So, in the season of giving and receiving eggs, chocolate, and alien infestations; have a short movie made by someone who has way too much time on their hands.

Naturally I will assume that this is where the surface has eroded to expose the ceiling of a subterranean city of space-smurfs until proven otherwise.

Chimps have entered the Stone Age.

They’re not as far behind us as we thought.

Due to our increasing technology and ecological footprint humanity decided in 2062 to pull back from the regions where primates live and instead focused on orbital and off-planet habitats. A few researchers remained in contact to chart the progress of our distant cousins, even as humanities earthbound population dwindled.

By the time the apes had reached the Iron Age equivalent in development, all they had left of us were half-forgotten myths. Legends told of tall, hairless, visitors who walked among them and shared the secrets of fire and agriculture. Godlike beings who sometimes inspired great building projects, but never stuck around for long.

By the time they themselves reached for the stars, we had moved onwards. Yet they still found traces of the races that came before.Those who had taken their first steps into the dark, and had left behind the cradle that we had called earth. That and the great machine left to welcome each successive race as it progressed from planetside evolution to spreading out amongst the stars.

… and the cycle began anew.
