We are the only two beings on our planet. It’s before speech and we draw on rocks to communicate.
When we’re out of rocks, we redraw on the first one.
Eventually, all we’re left with is a conundrum of a history, and I wish for a supernova.

There’s no real objection to escapism, in the right places… We all want to escape occasionally. But science fiction is often very far from escapism, in fact you might say that science fiction is escape into reality… It’s a fiction which does concern itself with real issues: the origin of man; our future. In fact I can’t think of any form of literature which is more concerned with real issues, reality.
