Speculative biology is simultaneously a science and form of art in which one speculates on the possibilities of life and evolution. What could the world look like if dinosaurs had never gone extinct? What could alien lifeforms look like? What kinds of plants and animals might exist in the far future? These questions and more are tackled by speculative biologists, and the Speculative Evolution welcomes all relevant ideas, inquiries, and world-building projects alike. With a member base comprising users from across the world, our community is the largest and longest-running place of gathering for speculative biologists on the web.

While unregistered users are able to browse the forum on a basic level, registering an account provides additional forum access not visible to guests as well as the ability to join in discussions and contribute yourself! Registration is free and instantaneous.

Welcome to SWHTYT, where nothing's on topic and the likes don't matter.
Time flows like a river. Which is to say, downhill. We can tell this because everything is going downhill rapidly. It would seem prudent to be somewhere else when we reach the sea.

Yep, knew this hammer was cracking down soon. Whelp, tenth verse, same as the first. :P
F.I.N.D.R
Mapping the Multiverse

Basic Project ideas and notes. Subject to change as I get my thoughts straight.

Katiwala - A pulp fiction Lost World, with a logical evolutionary history, but hopefully still capturing the atmosphere.
Heaven & Hell - Two factions of an otherworldly species that came to earth to harvest humanity and inspired our views of Angels and Demons.
замороженный конец - An Ice Age world populated by tripodal organisms. (Might not keep the Ice Age part, though I worry it might be too much like Nereus that way.)
The Great River - a world consisting only of a massive, ever looping waterway.
New New Amsterdam - Exploring life in an abandoned city, still being upkeep-ed by automated systems.
The Everdark Forest - The plants here have a near perfect light absorption rate, forcing the fauna to make due without sight.
The Gate Worlds - A fantasy world split apart by the gods into one biome 'realms', populated by monsters also of their making.
Aether - A "Space is an Ocean" style world of floating mountains, sky whales, and a breathable void in between.
Apocalypse - Metaphysical forces have changed this world into one both beautiful and terrifying
Bottle Beasts - A Pokemon style world where humans live alongside creatures of fantastic power.
Tiny Buns - a study into the nature of Friendship Magic. Yes, really.

SE Lifelist standings as of 7/25/17

BREAKING NEWS
We interrupt your regular programming to bring you this cutting edge report.
ATTENDANCE DROPS DRASTICALLY ON SE SERVER
This past Monday on Discord, famous server Speculative Evolution took a hit in the attendance office when it's offline member list suddenly reappeared. Mods scrambled to rectify the situation, but unfortunately there was little anyone could do. Server member Ivan was asked what he thought of the situation. "So long as Flisch, lord of machines and scion of Urborg lives, all will be well". SE, (in)famous for it's eccentric userbase, has recently been spiraling downward, and now we have hard conformation of the decline. Moderator "High Lord" Icthyander states "There is nothing to be concerned about, Discord is merely changing its UI again", but members are beginning to suspect the honesty of their staff.
Stay tuned, we'll be back with more at 11.

Does anyone think Hyaenodon is an Oligocene analogy for Allosaurus?

Also wow, I've been around for seven of these now.

I'm writing my college application essay on speculative biology - do you guys mind if I name some of your projects?
I won't use your usernames or anything, I just want to give examples of the ones that really inspire me.

I'm getting closer to my weight loss goals now. I've lost over 24kg so far and have less than 4kg to go till I reach my target, which I do intend to surpass of course (not sure how much by though, maybe another few kilos). Sorry if it sounds vain or anything, it's just my weight's been something pretty significant to me for years, so I feel happy to finally be doing something about it.
