The History of The Human Race Version 2.0
There is a secret that not many know. A mystery that many try to solve and have been trying to solve for eons now. Yet, if they knew the truth...they
would not be so eager to solve it. The story starts long before our history books do. It begins where most stories do, where a different story ends.
Before our species, there was another. It isn't well known and most of its history has been lost over time. But a few pieces of it can be found here
and there, intermixed within the early pages of our own history books. They were more advanced then us, and the tech they used was organic based. Very
different from what we use today.
But, that species was actually what we refer to ourselves as... Homo sapiens. In the end, they became extinct, faded out like so many other animals
have that came before us. The first and last of the human race lived and died in that cycle. That leaves you wondering who we are then, doesn't it?
If there were no more humans left after the last cycle, then what are we?
We are their version of AI. We were created not from thousands of years of evolution, but from the minds and hands of actual human beings. We didn't
take over like in The Terminator though, we were less violent than then we are now. We didn't destroy them or try to hurt them in any way. We honored
and revered them...our creators.
It was our fault (indirectly) and their fault as well that they died out. But mostly is was just nature and the desire of survival. A simple bacteria
caused their demise. One that mutated into something more suited to live off of our synthetic bodies. Yet, in doing so, it became a disease to
The first true plague or epidemic, a large number of them died out immediately, bringing their numbers that were in the millions down to thousands
instead. After a time, they were able to slow down the process, but they never were able to build up an immunity to the bacteria. And eventually, they
all died out...the human race became extinct.
There were a few that survived the plague, they rejected all the tech they had made, destroyed it, and moved to the wilderness. This was a desperate
move in order to save their race. They went back to using the rudimentary tools and foraging techniques of their ancestors. Trying desperately to keep
themselves isolated from the bacteria that wreaked havoc on their species. It was all to no avail. Eventually they died off too, but there is still
some evidence of their existence that can be found via archaeological studies of ancient burial sites.
What we are, who we are...we are bio-genetically engineered organic computers. Remnants of the last cycle, mimicking our creators in this cycle. Our
brains are the most advanced and capable CPU there is. Our bodies the most sophisticated housing unit. We are walking, talking, thinking personal
computers. Made from organic technology, and living under the false pretense that we are human beings.
A lie that was fabricated to keep our true nature secret from us. A falsehood that was meant to not only honor our creators, but also hide the fact
that we are not born of this Earth, but were invented and created by the true inhabitants of it. Once the real humans died out, we took over their
identity. Pretending that we were them and embracing their ideas/beliefs and history.
There is no missing link, there is no evolutionary track from their species to our own...we are both very different. One was natural to this world and
one was created for it. Where the evidence stops, where the break in the evolution line is...that is the end of their history and the beginning of
We survived, the organic humanoid replicates of their time. At first, once we realized they were all gone, we tried to continue to do the things we
were made to do. And then after that, we tried to mimic everything they
used to do. It took us awhile to develop into our own species and
figure out balance. But, the building blocks of our existence are founded upon their civilization and cultures.
Now, we will do as they once did. Create a synthetic AI humanoid, forcing nature to adapt to the new "species" and we will be the cause of our own
demise. That new humanoid will flourish, and we will go extinct. Then the world will belong to them and our history on this planet will be taken over
by our creation. As history repeats, so does every cycle on Earth. As one species dies off, another always rises up to take its place.
This is our true history, the history of the human race version 2.0
