the dead city had almost completely vanished.
Everywhere Will looked there were sun-bleached bones,
mostly poking from crumpled clothes.

I find it difficult to believe that we’re here − like ants on this spinning ball of rock − just by chance, just because of the laws of science and millions of years of evolution. And, as Will and Elliott discover, we’re not …’
