Science, Science Fiction and Fantasy blog io9 runs a series on their site regarding modern ruins and their states as they decay from human abandonment and non involvement. To an archeologist, this means a lot as we watch the taphonomy of the building and the site. It is sobering to watch what was once amazingly beautiful or important fall apart. In the words of Yeats, “the center cannot hold, things fall apart.”
Again, I won’t be writing a Nocturnal Rumination this night. Enjoy the images instead.
