There is often that big hoopla we all see from time to time aimed at condemning "cubs" being in furry artwork.
The planet shown here has not had a cub born on it for the past 27 million of years.
During the final years this planet supported the last life to inhabit it, it had truly become a worldwide, anti-cub, no cub zone.

Simple arithmetic;
No future generations + last generation dying off of old age = extinction.

However, there is still kind of a music left to be heard on this planet;

Up until 27 million ago, this planet was fertile and rich with life very much like Earth is today. There use to be a wide range of species of mammals, reptiles and birds, all of which were of intelligent and semi-intelligent species, and were males and females who produced young in the way we are all familiar with.
The planet also had plants, grass and trees, many of which produces fruit, nuts, berries and many other eatables.

There were also lots of really awesome insects that looked cool and pretty...and lots of fish and other aquatic life in the planet's many rivers, lakes and seas (the planet had no large oceans dividing the land into continents).
The intelligent mammals, reptiles and birds had a highly advanced civilization, rich in enlightenment, science, art, heritage and culture.
The worldwide climate (although cooler at the north and south poles) ranged about like that of Florida, Southern California, Central and South India, Northern Australia, Okinawa, New Orleans, Spain, Portugal and Hawaii, depending on altitude and the distance from the equator.
Barometric pressure use to be at about 970 millibars at the planet's lower elevations, which was only slightly lower than that of Earth (about the same as it is at the top floor of many of Earth's tallest buildings).
Then came an ominous day when a mysterious 'anti-cub' spirit swept across the landscape of the planet, causing no more cubs to conceive to be born.
Over the next 18 to 20 years (which is about 3 of their years), the last cubs who were born on the planet finally grew up and became adults. After that, every living thing on the planet was full grown adult...The entire planet was now a 'no cub zone'. The mysterious spirit that had swept over their world years earlier had also effected all other forms of life as well, from fish, to plant life, to one cell organisms....everything.
The anti-cub spirit didn't actually kill any living thing, but it did render all living species of life incapable of the process of reproduction.
It did not take a rocket scientist to figure out that as the last generation of everything got older, lived out the natural span of their lifetimes, then eventually died off of old age many years later, there would be no subsequent generations to continue the existence of the species of all life on the planet.
In time, the last of all life on the planet had finally finished the course of their lifetimes...That was when all life became extinct, thus the planet became lifeless. The carbon changes due to the sudden absents of all life on the planet started a gradual reaction of changes that would in time cause the planet itself to become inhabitable...primarily chemical changes within the planet's atmosphere.  
Within the next several thousand years, deterioration had done it's job erasing all traces of the bodies of the dead down to dust as though life had never existed on the planet...It took the next few million years for rust, corrosion, deterioration, and the elements to reduce to dust the ruins of their once beautiful cities, highways, and all other animal made things to a point where there was no longer the evidence that any of it had ever existed.    

Now days, the planet has been without organic life for so long, it no longer has the suitable conditions to support life as we know it...and it never will.

There is no longer any known water on the planet's surface...It is believed that the water on the planet has either undergone chemical changes with other elements in the ground and atmosphere, or it has all been deep underground for millions of years.

The atmosphere, having very little water vapor, consists of chlorine gas, chlorofluorocarbons, ammonium chloride, ammonia with smaller percentages of oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen and nitrous oxide. The planet's present barometric pressure is about 320 millibars at it's lower elevations...not much different than it is at the summit of Mount Everest on planet Earth.

Gravity is comparable to that of Earth.

Daytime temperatures at the equator reach well over 95 C (200 F), and plummet down to almost minus 185 C (minus 300 F) at night...At the north and south poles, temperatures are constantly between minus 210 C (minus 350 F) and minus 230 C (minus 380 F).
At the planet's polar regions, where temperatures are coldest, are permanent ice sheets of frozen chlorine, nitrogen and ammonia with the presents of liquefied and frozen oxygen. Much of the polar ice sheets have yellowish-greenish and turquoise hues from the chlorine content.  
As for most of the planet, shortly after sundown every evening, temperatures begin to drop low enough for the chlorine and ammonia gases in the atmosphere to condensate and become a heavy dew of liquefied droplets

...Continuing through the night, it gets cold enough for ammonia gases in the atmosphere to freeze into a light snowfall...As temperatures further plummet into the night, chlorine gases then start to freeze into a yellowish addition to the light snowfall.

The light snowfall lasts throughout the night until shortly past the crack of dawn. At sunrise, all precipitation stops because of the rapid rise in temperatures...That is when the snow cover that fell during the night vaporizes back into white and greenish fog of ammonia and chlorine gases which ascend back up into the atmosphere.

Throughout the daytime, it is so hot you can break an egg on the ground and it will fry...and hot enough to melt a plastic bag.

There are lethal amounts of ultraviolet radiation everywhere due to chemical deterioration over the millions of years to the planet's ozone layer from the chlorofluorocarbon content in the atmosphere.

It is believed the planet is rich in oil and fossil deposits because it had been inhabited by life at one time.

The cycle of one day is 34 hours, 9 minutes and 47 seconds by Earth's timescale.
Back when the planet was inhabited, from when it was time to get out of bed in the morning, to when it was time to go to bed at night was about 20 or 21 hours by Earth's timescale. And the average amount of sleep time from bedtime to sunrise was 13 to 14 hours (both days and nights were longer).  

It is the 4th planet from it's sun, and completes one yearly revolution in approximately 6 and a half of our Earth years (3 of their years are, or rather were, equal in time to 19 and a half Earth years)



The chlorine and ammonia gasses share the planet's atmosphere with other gasses, therefore they do not normally react violently to each other...However, if an ammonia fog cloud and a chlorine fog cloud vaporizing from the snowfall the night before were pure enough, they could produce a reaction and ignite. That has very rarely happened over the past 27 million years though. But when it does happen, it results in a midair, ground shaking, blast, or series of multiple blasts, some being loud enough to shatter eardrums and destroy sound recording equipment up to 12 kilometers (7 miles) away.

Some of those rarely occurring blasts could have been heard as far as 480 kilometers (300 miles) away had there been anyone on the planet to hear them. At 8 kilometers (5 miles) away, you could feel the shock wave rattle through your body...That is in spite of the planet's present barometric pressure being at about 320 millibars.
There have also been occasions, again a very occurrence over the past 27 million years, when a meteor would strike a morning ammonia fog cloud...The heat generated by the meteor would be well above the flash point of the ammonia cloud required to ignite it and blow it up, also resulting in the same kind of midair, ground shaking, blast wave.
These very rare occurrences, however, happen on an average of only once, at any given location on the planet, every twenty thousand years or so.

BTW...Had the meteor in pic # 6 fallen only an hour earlier, it would have struck the white, ammonia fog cloud in pic #5 before it would have drifted out of the way and dissipated safely back into the atmosphere...That meteor came within a hour resulting in one of those rare, colossal explosions.

A little bit of Forbidden Planet, a little bit of The Time Machine, a little bit of Mars' own RL history....

Mars did come to mind when I was doing this, except for that the planet in this posting has a way more hostile chemical make up to it's atmosphere, and it's temperature fluctuations are more extreme.

...Use to be a planet with Earthlike conditions until 27 million years ago...except it always did have the 34 hour day cycles (18 hour days - 16 hour nights).

*nodnod* That's why I said "a little bit of..." :) A steady diet of sci-fi for decades, and I just notice these things... :)

DOVER published a lost chapter of TIME MACHINE where the Time Traveler voyages to such a dark dim dreadful future , after his clashing with the Morlocks ....

Anything like my planet here?
EmmetEarwax

Almost, but just as depressing as the Time Traveler now knew the futility of all.
He stood on the shore of a lifeless sea, on a barren scape. Something slopped its way towards him, but mindlessly. The sun had become a vast bloated dim red orb. As he voyaged to this final day, he saw the day/night cycle slow down until the earth stood stationary ever facing the bloated almost black sun. He was saddened by there would never again be bird song or insect sounds... just the sterile ocean before him and the barren land behind.

He would return, back to his own time, and possibly go ahead again, to see if he could prevent what he had seen of the eloi and the morlocks. We do not know....

The Grey Man is the part you refer to.

The Time Machine is my all-time favourite readable book. :)

Should Sephira come here, with her unmeasurable power, she'd sense the past -and speak the space-tearing syllables of the Return Spell (she HAD been an ordinary sorceress before she spoke the Shining Tetrahedron spell and linked herself to all the power of the cosmos !!)
In the hands of an ordinary witch or wizard, the Return Spell would fix a broken object, unscramble a hopeless mess... In the hands of a top wizard/witch, it could resurrect the dead ! But in all cases, it could only work with what is there. In Sephira's case, backed up & screwed up to its topmost peak, the Return Spell would send the entire planet back along its time line and things would return !!! ... (continue ?)

So I take it that Sephira could fix the planet back to what it was prior to 27 million years ago.

Admidst a riot of sound ,the air,land and water would return to what it had been, then buildings would arise from the dust and dirt...and then plants & animals, and,finally, the people ! All this for an ulterior motive: all would be her slaves by & by. She would have also lost a bit of what humanity remained in her. She knew just when to stop the reversal, setting the parameters into the spell as the syllables were intoned. BUT - something would happen to her before she could exact the price.

Sounds like one of things best left alone as it is.
EmmetEarwax
1 year, 4 months ago
The philosophical question is asked: if there is NOTHING living to hear the explosion of ammonia and chlorine , then would there be a sound ?
moyomongoose
1 year, 4 months ago
The shock wave and air vibration would still be there, which is the sound.
It is just that no one would hear it.
EmmetEarwax
1 year, 4 months ago
It would not be sound unless a living thing detected the shake in the air and the shock waves, interpreting them as -sound.
moyomongoose
1 year, 4 months ago
That would all depend of what you consider the definition of "sound" to be. A living thing hearing it is the detection of sound.

After all, a radio left playing in a room by itself does not cease to play when everyone leaves.

Brings to mind an amusing incident in the 70's, when I was young. My folks and I were heading off to Europe for a vacation. Prior to heading out to the taxi with my luggage*, I set the clockradio in my bedroom to turn on each morning so people'd think we were still home. You know,like lights set to turn on automatically in the evening to fool intruders in the area.We gave keys to our neighbor in case of problems.

When we got back a few weeks later, our neighbor told us they had to enter our home to find- and turn off ! -the sourse of the talking and loud music they heard the day after we left,. My folks gave me :"tsktsktsk !". I thought the clockradio would turn itself off after an hour, but it wasn't that sophisicated.

The clockradio was on high volume as I was using it as an alarm clock (my hearing was poor even then,).Now my hearing is so bad, that even a radio playing next to me might not be heard without my hearing aide.

How profound.  If only it could be narrated by Carl Sagan.

He got close in the last episode of Cosmos. He showed a world at the moment civilization on it winked out forever. He got so depressing in his description that I turned off the set. That was halfway through the show.

In the gnomes books by Portlveit or such, the gnomes, due to an event that they do not talk about, only have 2 young per family. This means that any gnome who dies childless or any child who is prevented from growing up , means 2 less gnomes in the world. Someday, there will be no gnomes. Then the world will be poorer from the cessation of their services...

Very interesting. The artwork reminds me of an episode of Star Trek: The Original Series titled 'Metamorphosis'.

I thank you for the compliment.
I recently posted one about one of those rare gas cloud explosions, with what would have happened to an expedition mission had they been at that location on the planet when it happened.
