lol. I never post here, but read this site quite frequently for my fix of daily non main-stream news.However reading your thread has compelled me to
post, if nothing else, but to further encourage you to continue working on this story idea and develop it into a book. This truly is a great
alternative origin of huMan story.
I have been working with a very similar idea for a number of years now, but have never seriously developed it as I am more into video and media
production and to be done correctly, would cost in the 200 milliion range. As a book it would be amazing if done correctly. It very much is a
befitting origin mythos for our 21st century culture. The first conspiracy theory. Battlestar Galactica crossed with the x-files.
But yah, thats pretty much how I think it may have broken down as well. The rich would go underground and into space. The "enlightened" would be
called to safe zones (depending on the cataclysm, but most likely elevated locations) and the rest of the worlds population would be caught in the
Inevitably, small pockets would survive, sparsely scattered throughout the world. After a few generations or so humanity would reform into basic
hunter gather culture. Confused, lost and with no civilization left they would become almost like pre midi-evil Europeans. In time, the enlightened
would descend from their mountain sanctuaries and breath knowledge and enlightenment back into the world. (Many religions and indigenous cultures'
origin stories talk of the gods coming down from the heavens or the sky and spreading wisdom and information to the people. As an interesting, at
least to me, side note is that evil/demons in mythology generally tends to emanate from the bowels of the earth, where those damn rich bastards and
the offspring of the power hungry politicians would have hunkered down in their D.U.M.B. shelters and would make sense cuz they would be evil
And then there is the shambhala angle with the protected cities hidden within the earth. Damn if I wasn't writing a screenplay right now I would
offer to help. Good Luck and I will watch this thread and hopefully be able to negotiate the movie rights from you some day.
