    Cool story, bro. But the past does matter. The hells of the past are to be repeated, without intervention. Hence the progression. Social security (pretty well accepted). democratic socialism (tax supported Healthcare and education), which is turning into democratic communism (CA trying to pass guaranteed income). And all this while we watch the disasters in Venezuela, china and Cuba in real time, not to mention the atrocities of the past under socialist and communist leadership (dictatorship).

    I actually made a story that is similar and did not know that someone had thought of bring extinct animals to other planets. To sum up my story it is basicly aliens who were examined the velociraptors reliseased that an astroad was about to hit earth, they felt bad for them. Hence they created a planet for them and brought the velociraptors to that planet and and soon the valociraptors started a civilization. Currently they look very differnt from their ansestors, they have alot of cybernatic enhencments.(i used valociraptors because they had posable hands and were smart.)

    I keep coming back to this video. Not only because the worldbuilding is incredible, but because it reminds me and many others of cosmic horror....but different. I've wondered what that difference was. Then I realized why I personally keep coming back. You know what this is? This is like THEE sequel to Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos. Like a direct answer to Lovecraftian horror in general. Or a unique expansion on it. Think about it. Eldritch, alien, gods that don't see humans as anything other than meaninglessly matter to mess around with. In the future they'll rise up and destroy humanity like their nothing. All of that happens, but with a different take. Lets say we view this whole chronicle in a more Lovecraftian perspective. Humans advanced extremely far and act as if they were gods. (As if to try to prove to this meaningless universe that they do have meaning.) Until eldritch gods (Qu) rise up and exterminate them all except the subspecies they messed around with. (Which did happen to humans in some Cthulhu mythos stories). Humanity is exterminate as was always prophesied, but humans live on in the same eldritch warp forms they perceived the eldritch gods as. For the next millions of years, which is torturous to humans but is nothing for the universe, they evolved and became one with the universe (By being more align with universal laws like evolution instead of consciousness. Because having consciousness in weird eldritch forms made from evolution is torturous.) While evolving, the humans became more aware and active. Some of them are just in a blissful existence being one with their surrounding nature while some others are in societies that are violent and destructive like human nature. Either way they're all just being part of nature/the universe instead of trying to be dominant rulers playing God with science or technology.) Until new species find advanced technology and try to bend the universe to their will without seeing any other living thing as people or creatures. But the creatures that were one with the universe and didn't try to rule the galaxy out of selfish hubris defeated them. And since eventually the post-humans defeat the Qu (The eldritch Gods), the humans have proven to the universe that they do have meaning. But the thing is, that fact isn't a triumph. Normal humanity is extinct because of cosmic deities who saw humans as nothing. The surviving remnants are eldritch aliens. They suffered billions of years of agony from evolution. And while in the end, the human spirit lived on, they pretty much replaced the Qu as the eldritch abominations of the universe. Now you may be thinking: "Despite being warped beyond repair and suffered for it, they defeated the Lovecraftian horrors and the human spirit lives on." That is true, but none of this would happen if the Qu never attacked humanity. The Qu tried to play God by warping everything around them and they paid the price for it. If you know, Lovecrafts philosophy of Cosmicism, it says things are not gods, they are just entities. Just as we and flies are entities. Yes, we are stronger than flies and could kill them without a second thought, but we still face consequences for playing God. Like messing with technology that goes wrong which cause disaster. As if the universe demands that all entities follow the laws of the universe and if they try to rule it or be its god, it will destroy them and get out of its way. That rule applies with Eldritch Gods as well. So humanity basically became apart of the universe. They submitted to its evolutionary cycles and cosmic laws which their ancestors suffered from because they weren't evolved enough. And they've learned that one must not try to play God or the universe will destroy them to bring balance back. Just like the cosmic horrors in HP Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos that just don't noticed humans. They're just entities going with the universal flow. And now humans submitted to that flow and that flow doesn't supported consciousness. Hope is useless. As is always when related to cosmic nihilisms. The best thing to do, is to submit to the universe. And not use your consciousness for anything great like inventions that could terraform worlds or genetically modify new species. Just keep your consciousness for simple blissful lives. Don't think about to hard. Or you'll suffer the worst suffering life can have. That's why this fascinates me so much to me personally. This was not a Cosmic Horror, this was a *COSMIC TRAGEDY*. While I'm pretty sure this interpretation of mind isn't perfectly accurate, its still an interpretation that says: "The Universe is meaningless and only entities roam its worlds. It doesn't not care about you and any entity will not have second thought about you. The best you can do is be a part of its universal dance no matter how alien it is to your human consciousness. That way you'll survive and any entity that steps out of line in that dance will be destroyed. Not by your useless attempts to defeat them but by the universes."

    @Mullerornis "far more idealistic"? In case you haven't noticed, people were turned into living filters for eldritch waste and they were left like that for millions of years complete aware to experience all their suffering. No one in a Lovecraft story experience such misery. Yeah, very idealistic. Also when you eat meat from animals, doesn't that make you a racist? Heck, when you eat vegetables? Does that make you a bad guy? That's what the Qu thought of humanity. So did the Deities in the Cthulhu mythos.

    Holy Smokes, that is super interesting. Makes me wanna write a book or make a movie about eldritch deities and biological species fighting and then as they were fighting, the invented machines so advanced that the machines gained consciousness and revealed themselves as the universe itself. Just in a form biological types made. And they said, "serve me, and I will defeat the eldritch horrors. Defy me and you will suffer the same fate." Biological types begin serving the machines to defeat the cosmic horrors but now they have to serve the machines. It's sad, but it their best fate.
