It's true. The bottom of the rabbit hole, if known by the masses, would probably destroy the world... again.
It is not easy to accept that long ago this world was once ruled by what some considered "gods" which were really just humans that had access to
advanced knowledge of all sciences. They used their "magic" which was just a deep understanding of the inner workings of the universe to rule over
lesser humans that didn't deserve to know their secrets. The lesser humans were crude and not wise enough to yield such power. From some perspectives
these lesser humans were enslaved, but some of them were willing slaves because they looked up to these "gods" and worshiped them in hopes of getting
something in return.
Through some internal conflict and drama, factions of these "gods" split up and became enemies. They even brought factions of slaves with them. Wars
between these "gods" and their slaves started. During these wars advanced weapons were used, and it destroyed a majority of all past civilizations and
their establishments in the process. It killed off almost everyone, and that is when the last "world wide amnesia" began. The winners of the war then
swore to never let this happen again, and they went into hiding with their knowledge. They secretly rebuilt the world and controlled it from within
They made sure the next civilization would never discover the knowledge, so they burned books, killed scientists, and made sure accidental discoveries
and inventions that could open new scientific doors were locked up, squashed, and lost. They steered scientists in a direction that would ensure
confusion, artificial complexity, and slow progress, ultimately muddying the waters of science. However, they allowed some advancements to take place,
but not for the benefit of the masses, it was for increased control of them.
One thing they never stopped doing was the enslavement of the masses. This time they have done it in a way where the masses don't realize they are
enslaved. Unfortunately running things from the shadows is not easy, and things get out of control. What we are seeing now is a fight for control. It
may even start another war, and another mass reset of humanity could take place.
A large portion of the public would riot, revolt, reject, disbelieve, and our ability to advance would be harmed irreparably if they knew they were
lesser enslaved beings ruled over by a select few and their magic. That is where the rabbit hole ends for some. Deeper so is the story of where the
magic came from.
