CHANG Teng-Yuan

The Sixth Genre: Beast Mimic/Torured Beastnoid



In my fiction, the main character, Parrot Man, is researching the causes of humankind’s extinction and their devastation into the mud on a parallel apocalyptic Earth. Their methodology is to repeat whatever humankind has done before and to experience the decisions made at that critical and decisive moment and see what humankind was facing.

While in the parallel world on the apocalyptic Earth, species breeding has reached 60% of the anthropocene. The Parrot Man has created animals, including bats, cows, pigs, sheep, fish… etc., based on their understanding. In the same stage, they observe something interesting: things are getting out of control.

Different species start to compete. Many unidentified factors lead to hybridization, and unexpected viruses emerge from the hybridization also make the situation more chaotic. Based on human decisions, the Parrot Man successfully processes the new apocalyptic Earth to the point of destruction. As to why all species turn into colored mud, the Parrot Man believes that they will definitely find the cause by reproducing human history.
