In the Cretaceous, Connor discovered the true meaning of ‘darkness’. There was no orange glow of cities, no artificial lights. There was just black, shadows, and the infinity of stars in the night sky.

On those nights, Connor understood early humanity’s fear of the dark.

When there was a full moon it was surprising how much light it cast, bathing the forest in a soft, silver glow. It offered a sense of safety, enticing him out of hiding and into the night.

Connor knew the temptress moon was lying.

Fear of the dark wasn’t a weakness. It was basic survival.
