To the Future Inhabitants of This Planet

The species “Homo sapiens” was overwhelmed by greed. He was a creature who consumed more than he would need. In the fabric of the world, man definitely earned his place. They built skyscrapers and bridges, and sent rockets into space. These beings possessed a major flaw of distinction: Their self-destructive tendencies drove them to extinction. That is why none of them today can be found. Have you noticed that humans are no longer around? To you future intelligent beings who on this planet exist: The errors man made comprise a very long list. Share and distribute evenly before it is too late. Otherwise, you will also suffer man’s inevitable fate.
