What you see here is an image of a traditional apocalypse – cities abandoned, buildings destroyed, people divided into tribes or left scared and scattered, vegetation everywhere. –
Initially, people thought that the world was going to end up like this or something similar.
I honestly really like post-apocalyptic stories because they often involved what-if scenarios and they gave room to reflections of how the world was before and whether it was all worth it or what would they bring back if they ever manage to bring back anything.
It is often a story of not just survival but also a reflection of how the priorities shifted in the blink of an eye and people had to come to terms with the realisations that their daily lives were so different or some of the priorities or things that they often thought to be important or not as important were actually not what they thought.
And here we are, in the actual thing, or at least close to it. And yes, even I want some things back as soon as possible once we manage to calm things down but looking back, I really realised certain things and I really want people to notice this too.
I felt the "old world" was very fast-paced, perhaps too much. There were too many things going on at once and we were always on edge and so on. The priorities were not as important as we once thought or the things that we kept on putting aside are now at the forefront or made us realise that some things should be just as important.
And honestly, I hated the "old world" and I wish that other people do the same, similar to how I often learned about these things from apocalyptic stories that have been a niche genre generations.
And I actually really give this vibe of reflection when looking into post-apocalyptic stories, some film, others in other medium like I Am Legend, the Last of Us, the Walking Dead, Blade Runner, the Planet of the Apes (the 1968 version), the Fallout series and so on.
Though to be fair, The Last of Us actually made me think of this a lot recently.
I believe that this is of ample opportunity for audiences to look into the post-apocalyptic genre to reflect on certain things given the current state of things, similar to I have been able to reflect on these back when I looked into the post-apocalyptic genre.
