If humanity were to become extinct, do you think another animal species would evolve to take our place? What lessons do you think they'd learn from our successes and failures?


I suppose it is possible that a new form of life would evolve in our absence. Would they learn from our mistakes? Well, I am hypothetically assuming that with the extinction of humans, the written records would still exist? That being said, I would hope that the new species recognizes our mistakes of the use of carbon dioxide and not repeat history.

I think the new species wouldn't be able to find the oil to copy our mistakes because we humans would have used it all :p

But I wonder what from our world would exist for thousands of years other than nuclear waste? I remember a history professor telling us that the electronic equipment we write things on can't last that long unless it is preserved very well with the device to read it.

What’s funny about this question/post is that I’m writing a SciFi novel based off of this theory, but of course humanity was kill off during global war with an alien species that they co-existed with a few centuries.
