  • The end of the world occurred with neither a bang nor a whimper.

    It simply came into being, obliterating everything that had been before.

    A sadly inevitable outcome, born from a desire for self-destruction.

    The climatic moment marked by the gathering of witnesses. All tinged with an ennui of resigned acceptance.

    Everything stopped, yet everything carried on.

    Survivors picked their way through the aftermath. Trying to secure some sense of truth.

    An answer to the question why?

    Inevitably no answer could ever truly be found.

    It was the end of the world after all.
