In the beginning, there were humans. There was utopia.
We were immortal, med-tech keeping us well past normal years. Our AI was like a benevolent dictator, gently guiding us, helping us, keeping us from harming each other. Our hive minds connected us to the Library, and we knew every good act and foul deed our race had done across the ages. Art flourished, millions of tear-worthy books written every year, stunning paintings, surreal music. Science boomed, energy becoming cheaper and cleaner as solar power increased in efficiency. We cataloged the DNA of every living species, and brought back the extinct ones. We sent ships, powered by our solar and water energy, to the edge of the solar system. We learned, we flourished.
There were still mistakes. Accidents. Crimes. Not a perfect utopia. But a working one.
Then they came.
