Every worst case scenario has occurred – nuclear war, global warming, mass species extinction – to name but a few. Clusters of scientists survive and their advanced technology becomes something else – Magick. Over many centuries, absolute corruption sets in as they realize that they can do anything – any fantastic idea or desire can become a reality.
