The past is a vast and mysterious land that begins at the big bang and ends in the present, expanding with each passing moment. It is the home of everything that came before, the key to understanding our present. Here we find the most amazing creatures to ever roam our planet, hundreds of millions of species so diverse that our imagination cannot do them justice. Unfortunately the past carefully guards its secrets.

    humans would rather see other animals dead than observe and adore them... humans value a 10 second taste over their life (yuk), humans prefer to wear their skin for a fashion statement (sick) humans would rather make money than allow other animals to have a home without harm (how disgusting).... get real humans, we are a selfish animal collective, that much so we would actually rather kill ourselves slowly than respect other life and this planet we ALL call home....
