EVERYTHING will change after it happens. We all sense it.
It's instinct. The survival instinct.
INSTINCTIVELY we know that calamity is approaching. We're fascinated by the idea. We watch movies about it. We read books about it. Some of us dedicate years of our lives in preparation for it. Disturbingly, some of us even yearn for disaster to unfold.
OUR GOVERNMENTS have contingency plans. Pandemics. Nuclear Holocaust. Asteroid Impact. Supernova. Solar Flare. Magnetic Field Reversal. Nano-plague. Bioterrorism. They have a lot of plans. We've given this a lot of thought. We want to survive.
BUT we're going to be blind-sided.
We'll be completely unprepared. We are so busy guarding against the known threats that the unknown ones will slip right through our defenses. Right under our radar.
We'll never see it coming.
IT'S INEVITABLE. But it's not the end. Not by a long shot. Because one of our predictions will always remain true: Humans will adapt. Whatever situation we find ourselves in, as an individual or as a race, we will rise together to counter it. This is our greatest strength, and will be the source of our greatest stories. Here are eight of those stories. Eight stories centered around the world-changing events we never predicted. The events we never saw coming. Eight different scenarios, some effecting a single person, some effecting every person on the face of the planet.
These are the stories of what people will do AFTER.
