Great vid thx for posting....reminds of the glass beach at Fort Bragg.....
Wow a jewelry makers paradise! I would love to wire wrap some of those glass pieces!!!!!
Beautiful! I love seeing photos like these. Nature will always win. Us silly humans like to think that we're in control, but that's just so foolish. Mother nature has been around eons longer then us... she knows what's up, and she wont be tied down.

If civilization breaks down, It would only take a few hundred years for almost everything to look like you saw in the video. I can already imagine that if mankind somehow get almost completely erased by some sort of natural cause, and only small groups of people would survive, that within 10000 years, these new primitive people would talk about the ancient legends of huge stone towers, flying metallic birds, explosions brighter than the sun, etcetera, that had happened in the past.
If I remember it correctly, some films have this as a movie plot.

I read once that eastern philosphy considers that ultimately, In the world of matter, Yin is stronger than Yang, and eventually overcomes it. Man can only revel in himself for so long before he is drowned out.... Again and again....
It's odd we went from building something like that, back to throwing rocks with a sling and up to where we were 200 years ago building devices just like that, clocks, wind up toys, early industrial machines....
Even our greatest and durable monuments will be gone, much like your vid showed, you had trees growing through everything, cars, railroads, old trains made out of steel, stone buildings and stone fences, metal signs and metal statues and everything, and even a tree which had two ice skates in it, do to the tree just growing near and just incorporating into it, that and even a street sign, and a whole bunch of other things.

What about them?
Space is the least forgiving place to be, if left to themselves those satellite will only turn into so much junk floating around, and eventually fall to earth and every single piece it was made of came from the earth. So ya! Those satellites to will eventually return back to the earth whence they came.
Except those we send into deep space. But those to eventually in time will probably be pulled by somethings gravity and likely a sun's, and be gone like magic, or just another meteor of metal and ice and any other debris it picks up as its flying over some distant worlds, over and over for a very very long time.
