Apocalyptic History

We have a long drawn out history of which to look at for why we are so obsessed with the end of days. It’s hard to pinpoint when this began, but I think we have always had a reflexive instinct to think of the WHAT IF and perhaps it because we used to live in a violent landscape to which no certainty was granted. I believe that this might give us a unique reason as to what it is about obsessively constructing our worst/best case scenario. It might also have to do with our history of dealing with things, and a timeline of which we have seen immense destruction by nature, war, gun violence, climate, and more. In this post, I am going to share with you some resources on where to find the best sources on historical examples of our obsessions and where to draw from in the research on writing future worlds.
