5 minutes: The cladding was

The cladding was overrun with moss, vines, and other signs of nature. Human civilization was no longer what it once was. The land that was once forcibly taken from the wild was returned to it, and nature reclaimed it with open arms.

Everywhere was green - parking lots, hospitals, military bases.

But where was humanity? They had moved on. Old technology was no longer useful for them. They had become beings of pure thought, manifesting objects only when needed.

And they rarely needed it.

The age of technology was over, and the Age of Spirit had come. In some ways, it was the Age of Magic, perhaps for the second time.
