The Future History of Humankind

A tiny margin of error causes a future human to be misprojected to the present day and, as they wait to be recovered, we learn about what brought them here – as well as the events that led our species to a future without war, death, suffering or free will.

Set against the backdrop of climate change, escalating nuclear war, the rise of Artificial Intelligence, and the next phase of the human race, this gripping and thought-provoking piece sparks a conversation that needs to be had.
