“It appeared as if from nowhere, seemingly beautiful in either the night or day sky alike. From the ground, the solar dust surrounding the huge meteor sparkled like fireflies as it passed across the sky in its elliptical, low Earth orbit. The bountiful creatures of Earth’s vast plains looked on, barely giving the new arrival a second thought. Second thoughts, were after all something of a luxury in this era…mostly it was eat, or be eaten. Stopping to think should have come with a government health warning, and may have, had the dinosaurs been smart enough to form a government. Days passed into weeks, weeks into months and still the light show in the sky continued, all the time getting fractionally closer. Most of the dinosaurs continued as normal, some though were spooked every time it entered their field of vision, and either hid, or were taken over by madness for a short time. Because of the regularity due in main to the trajectory of the now glowing meteor, dinosaurs all over the planet, whether on land or in the sea, had by now become accustomed to its habitual arrival.
And so it was during the fourth month of the meteor’s visit, a booming noise started to accompany it’s ever decaying path. The ground quaked, the oceans whipped up into a frenzy whenever their paths crossed. Until the inevitable happened. During the heat of the day, and with debris strewn off of it at a rate defying belief, gravity finally won the mother of all battles. Somewhere over a huge landmass the impact occurred. Of course the dinosaurs, small and large alike had tried to outrun it…but to no avail. It was like trying to outrun destiny itself…….there was simply no point in even trying to lace up your trainers. The impact itself could be felt across the entire planet. Continents parted, mountain ranges shook, oceans boiled, rivers changed course,……..animals and plants alike DIED!
The impact crater was unlike anything the planet had ever experienced. The ground in that area still gave off heat centuries later. That was how it happened, and that was where it started. For us it was only the beginning. Who would have known that the core of all the rock, ice, minerals and solar dust carried on that potentially planet destroying, galaxy sized marble, was made up of the single largest laminium deposit in the solar system. This is when WE were born. Yes..dinosaur DNA is an integral part of us. But we are so much more. We fight about the meteor! Destiny, or a fluke of nature…call it what you will. We will never truly know. But that impact, collision….call it what you want, changed our world in ways we may never understand. We should embrace that. We should hold on to that. And we should protect this stunning planet with our last breaths, because we may just be one of the tiny pieces in the most intricate of puzzles.”
