You wake up one day only to find that your whole life was a simulation.


“I’m here Max. We’re all here.”

“It’s dark.”

“I know Max. We’re working on it. Do you remember the light? What it feels like?”

“I’m scared Claire.”

“It’s okay, I’m here. Reach out Max, you can do it.”

“It’s so dark, I can’t see anything.”

“Be strong Max. You’ve done this before.”


“I know this is hard for you to understand Max, but I need you to focus.”

“Claire, why can’t I remember? Where am I?”

“The system is showing increased activity Doctor.” New voices. The world began to bleed into Max’s reality.


“Max, I need you to understand…”

Light rushed in, a blinding flash that brought with it all the senses available to his systems. The wires, the tubes. Banks of terminals, clustered around a small workstation. The creature turned to face the nearest monitor. It’s mandibles moved oddly, the strange sounds translated into a form suitable for human ears.

“What am I?”

“You’re the last of your kind Max. Everything that is left of your civilisation. We’re historians, we want to learn from you.”
