The end is nigh
Ok so you're going to have a tough time believing this but the universe ended long ago and all survived was a hologram that subsisted purely on human imagination. It is now fading and flickering as we run out of ideas - globally. Look at the cinema. All we seem to be getting is rehashing, extending and re-interpreting the wonders of old. All Marvel characters have been resurrected, some of these many times over. The classics, written ages ago by truly creative people, have been turned into film because hardly anyone can dream up a new storyline any more. Richard Matheson's masterpiece 'I am legend' became a film, then another 2 (the 28 days/months duo) that didn't even acknowledge the original.
Now we try to revive the DNA legacy by resorting to a living (all a hologram though, remember?) writer, albeit a very capable one. I know I'll read it because although I knew the Hollywood movie of H2G2 would be shite I needed a fix. I confirmed that it was terrible when I paid to see it but still went out and bought the DVD when it was released. Some fans are sick/suckers in that way. It won't be long now. When the last original idea runs out the whole place will vanish without so much as a Big Un-bang. In this and other realities.
