One day the day may come where human life is no more. Perhaps we will be replaced by a new breed of humans, or we may be gone completely. If a new breed of human is introduced then there is always a chance that the world will continue as normal and all will be fine. But what if there is no new race? What if the human race is gone? The idea of the earth being without human life is not a foreign one, but it can be a frightening one. A world were the only life left is animal life. It sound almost like a utopia. But what is the benefit if there is no human life to enjoy it? Perhaps a world filled with animal life returning to its primal form is not a utopia but instead something much more detrimental. It begs the question as to whether or not the world ends just because we do. Does the world truly end simply because human life has? Surely the world will go on without us. But that in itself is the intriguing thought. Does the world go on once human life is gone? How would we know, we would be gone with no proof as to whether or not the earth would be able to sustain itself and carry on. It almost resembles the idea that if a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? The same can be said for the earth once human life is gone. Does the world carry on? How does it carry on? Does the world simply cease to exist? In a society that demands explanations to every kind of dilemma and problem that is presented, the idea of what will happen on earth after human life will be one left eternally unanswered.
We will never know.
That is the scariest thought of all.
