The Anthropocene defines Earth's most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans.

Like Icarus, humankind flies too high on its own ambitions. We almost forgot how reliant we are on the natural world. We alter and modify it solely for our own good. In the end, we will become a myth, just leaving behind the evidence of our existence in a geological layer known as the Anthropocene.
