I was visiting GISS that day hoping to gain some climate science insights and, perhaps, collaborators. That’s how I ended up in Gavin’s office.
Just as I was revving up my pitch, Gavin stopped me in my tracks.
“Wait a second,” he said. “How do you know we’re the only time there’s been a civilization on our own planet?”

oh, i do love fiction that has this as the base.  I've even seen the whole "but there was a sword and sorcery world" before our civilization. alas, we just can't find the evidence as much as I'd love to see it.
