Orcus is a rogue planet, a runaway world, finally captured by the Sun's gravitational field, but only after doing terrible damage to a future Earth. Even before this catastrophic event, however, the human race had been split into different factions--the Ants and Antelope. The Ants had become specialised in mechanical aptitudes, trying to create a mechanical machine-like society,while the Antelope who specialised in the aesthetic, sought balanced development. The antelopes fled en masse to Orcus, to build a civilisation there, whilst the Ants remained on Earth, periodically sending raiding parties to Orcus to capture girls and women.

From the primeval fire and the first big bang that generated both space and time, the universe has been moving gradually toward disintegration. One day it will come to stardom - the ultimate catastrophe. The sun will burn out, the galaxies will turn into giant graveyards, and space-time will be overwhelmed as black holes swallow up whole stars and star systems and coalesce to form superholes. Without the use of complex formulas or symbols Paul Davies explains some of these mind-boggling concepts, telling as exciting a story as any that can ever be. He explores, too, the place of intelligent life in a universe moving inexorably to obliteration, suggesting the outlines of a new supertechnology that may allow survival.
