From Game of Thrones to the trend of vampire novels, post-apocaliptic stories, hard sci-fi, cyberpunk, steampunk and all other genres, we’ve fast become addicted to science fiction, fantasy, and horror.
Why such a departure from what “normal” looks like?
Maybe because normal kinda sucks?
Maybe because almost every specie on this planet dreams for the purpose of avoiding reality? Of filtering the stress dealt to its central nervous system during the day?
Maybe we want to escape normal…
Maybe we all secretly(or not so) wish to live in an entirely different world than the one we live in.
Maybe we hate the rules that keep this universe in place and wish to live in one ruled by different laws.
Or maybe we want to be different.
We wish for greatness…
Super human speed, strength, endurance?
A simpler world?
One without all this technology and stuff?
The world after the end of the world resembles the one at the very beginning in a lot of ways.
Art is all about wishes.
Of course, wishing for something does not make it so.
But that never stopped us anyway.
