-Me and the Cat -Blogger of the Week

"Personally, I would be delighted if there were a life after death,
especially if it permitted me to continue to learn about this world and others -- if it gave me a chance to discover how history turns out."
~~~Carl Sagan

Yes Carl, I think that would be very cool. It would be nice to say---while treading water somewhere in the vast oceans of the formerly ice-capped Arctic or Antarctica---"I told you so". This comment would be directed to the naysayers of today who poo-poo the very idea of global warming, etc. etc.

OK, I'm going to say that "we" would be coming back after polar bears, seals, and other wildlife are already extinct, but perhaps "we" (homo sapiens) would have evolved into a small, dark-scaly-skin kind of thingie? "We" would be on a planet with, probably, polluted air, and all water sources would be filled with viral and bacterial kaka---so, ummm, what would the evolving life forms eat? (whatever terra firma there is will have been all "farmed" out so what little solid land is left is useless for growing food)----so that's that.

The new evolutionary lifeforms will probably exist on stuff from the oceans (the oceans will be at least double in size after all the ice melts) algae, krill, red crabs--the "new world" cockroaches which will probably never be killed off, and who knows what weird little creatures to dine on?
Such simple things, eh? Air, Food, Water. Oh, and some kind of shelter would be nice, since it would be kind of hot all over the planet, wouldn't it? But perhaps the new lifeforms will just evolve with gills and live IN all that water? It happened before, the potential "next time" there will be lots more water. Hah.
Yeah I think it would be very interesting to come back in....what? many years from now? A thousand? Several hundred? Or billions, like the first time? ---OR---was there yet another totally different planet before the one we're living on now? Who knows. The new lifeforms can call their first chapter "Genesis". And who is going to yell "plagiarism!" if, some-thing recognizes where it came from?
Oh well, I don't think we have much to worry about, actually. We will all be kaput, like the rest of the flora and fauna. Really totally weird, eh?
See ya later....gotta run now. I think the guys in their white coats with the butterfly nets are coming after me now. teehee
