 The world holds beautiful works of art of incomparable complexity; great houses which last for hundreds of years; caves which extend so far and deep that entire civilizations can rise and fall without ever leaving; structures that serve as meeting place to dozens, but which are crafted so subtly that they are indistinguishable from natural objects. Humans produce none of these. Their life spans are short, so what they create is bound to be temporary. Artwork decays in centuries; buildings house only a few generations before they collapse; land cleared for farming reverts to its natural state within centuries. The world holds beautiful works of art of incomparable complexity; great houses which last for hundreds of years; caves which extend so far and deep that entire civilizations can rise and fall without ever leaving; structures that serve as meeting place to dozens, but which are crafted so subtly that they are indistinguishable from natural objects.
