A dog invented three machines to create a new planet. The first created biology, it assembled DNA and got the mechanisms of animals and plants up and running. The second dealt with geology, it built mountains and assembled layers of tectonics complete with fossils and crystals for explorers to find. The third machine distilled arrogance from young stars and injected it into a single species. That species became better than all the others. The planet, it’s oxygen and all its resources were there for the taking. They ate the food from the cupboard, drank the homebrew from under the stairs and were sick in the bath. They used up all the coal in a roaring inferno and only then did they realise that there would be no shopping for another 3.5 billion years.
