PostApocalyptic Web Series END TIMES Ep 11 Camera On
ARCHIVIST: This is the first framing tutorialfor a set of clips off a camera marked 62025. It's part of an ongoing project begun in 2023by the late Christie Ruhani to cover the years after the 2013 viral outbreak. I'm primarilylooking at initial power structures and the foundation of the political entities we seetoday. Camera 62025 is notable because of the amount of footagefrom what I've downloadedso far, it looks like wesort ofmeet this group of five survivors who found the camera3 months after the initial outbreak and just started filming their experiences. I willfilm one of these framing tutorials every couple of clips, to try to sum up what I'm learning,maybe give some information that will help
out along the way. I mean, it's gonna go prettyslowly. It's almost impossible to actually get this shit off the camera, mainly sinceI don't have any real editing equipment! NAVIN. Sorry! ARCHIVIST. Go swell up. Um, I'll post threeor four clips at a time, maybe tell you what's going on with them, try and put it into alarger context. In these first clips we get an introduction to the five survivors andtheir situation. Frankly, it's a common story. Theythey're doing well. But report, theirsurvival skills are bullshit. They were just lucky. They were damn lucky. They will getbetter, I'm sure, but those are baseball bats.
I am all for impact weaponry, but those arebaseball bats. That's all I'll say for now, I'll make another of these tutorials when I havetime to get more footage off the camera. Until the end. TRACE. Whoaget out of town! HARRY. What's upé TRACE. Found a camera. It works! HARRY. No way, the owners must have left it. TRACE. I could hook it up to the crank charge.
HARRY. Seriouslyé That would be kind of badass. TRACE. I'd say five bucks on it, but. yeah.Hey guys, check this out! CHARLIE. I found chili! KIMBER. Flour over here! ADRIAN. Plus I think like a million noodlecups! CHARLIE. Ok, that is, in fact, an absoluteton of noodles. ADRIAN. Pastaaaaaaaaa! CHARLIE. What'd you findé
TRACE. Camera! HARRY. She wants to make an apocalyptic log. ADRIAN. Like a diaryé KIMBER. Yeah, Adrian, like a diary. Only tutorial.Sort of like those brothers that Charlie likes. The ones with the cancer booké CHARLIE. The vlogbrothers, Kimber. TRACE. I wonder what happened to themé CHARLIE. The apocalypse is no match for Hankand John Green! Give it five years, they'll
have a working society spanning several states. KIMBER. Well, you've got to believe in something. HARRY. Hey, do you want to take that thingwith usé TRACE. Yeah, hold on, let me HARRY. Both hands on the bat, Trace. TRACE. There's no one around, Worf. CHARLIE. Oh my god, that's the perfect comparison. HARRY. Shut it.
When Will Time End Version 1
Time is flying by on this busy, crowded planet.as life changes and evolves from second to second. And yet the arc of human lifespan is gettinglonger: 65 years is the global average . way up from just 20 in the Stone Age. Modern science, however, provides a humblingperspective. Our lives. indeed the life span of the human species. is just a blipcompared to the age of the universe, at 13.7 billion years and counting. It now seems that our entire universe is livingon borrowed time.
And that even it may be just a blip withinthe grand sweep of deep time. Scholars debate whether time is a propertyof the universe. or a human invention. What's certain is that we use the tickingof all kinds of clocks. from the decay of radioactive elements to the oscillation oflight beams. to chart and measure a changing universe. to understand how it works andwhat drives it. Our own major reference for the passage oftime is the 24hour day. the time it takes the Earth to rotate once. Well, it's actually23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.1 seconds. approximately. if you're judging by the stars, not the sun.
Earth acquired its spin during its birth,from the bombardment of rocks and dust that formed it. But it's gradually losing that rotation todrag from the moon's gravity. That's why, in the time of the dinosaurs,a year was 370 days. and why we have to add a leap second to our clocks about every18 months. In a few hundred million years, we'll gaina whole hour. The daynight cycle is so reliable that ithas come to regulate our internal chemistry. The fading rays of the sun, picked up by theretinas in our eyes, set our socalled quot;circadian
rhythmsquot; in motion. That's when our brains begin to secrete melatonin,a hormone that tells our bodies to get ready for sleep. Long ago, this may have been anadaptation to keep us quiet and clear of nighttime predators. Finally, in the light of morning, the flowof melatonin stops. Our blood pressure spikes. body temperature and heart rate rise as wemove out into the world. Over the days . and years. we march tothe beat of our biology. But with our minds, we have learned to followtime's trail out to longer and longer intervals.
Philosophers have wondered. does time movelike an arrow. with all the phenomena in nature pushing toward an inevitable endé Or perhaps, it moves in cycles that endlesslyrepeat. and even perhaps restore what is thereé We know from precise measurements that theEarth goes around the sun once every 365.256366 days. As the Earth orbits, with each hemispheretilting toward and away from its parent star, the seasons bring on cycles of life. birthand reproduction. decay and death.
Only about one billionth of the Sun's energyactually hits the Earth. And much of that gets absorbed by dust and water vapor in theupper atmosphere. What does make it down to the surface setsmany planetary processes in motion. You can see it in the annual melting and refreezingof ice at the poles. the ebb and flow of heat in the tropical oceans. The seasonal cycles of chlorophyll productionin plants on land and at sea. and in the biosphere at large. These cycles are embedded in still longerEarth cycles.
