Brutal Beginnings

Little was remaining of the once brutal world that existed, a world where difference was met with intolerance, where the drive for quick cheap food brought misery to the world. A world where no time was given to the fine details that make up our universe. Where some of the finest were merely trampled in the stampede to the top of a cliff where no one had anywhere to go but fall off. 
For millions of years previous to these comparatively golden times had existed a world where survival almost certainly involved a fight, a fight for space, a fight for food, a fight for money. It is hard to imagine these horrors now and not many care to, though they are far from forgotten as information of the dark years keeps everyone passionate about making improvements everyday to the world around them. 
Communication has allowed for a world where none are forgotten and all are treasured. Money had disappeared to be looked at in museums as its value diminished as it was found that through technological advancements people no longer needed to exchange it. The only similarity between these two worlds, is the weather and seasons remain as do the oceans and the mountains, little else is recognisable. The devil was in the detail but not as first imagined by the carnivorous early inhabitants of the world.
