* In about 450 600 million years, increased the acceleration of the greenhouse effect due to increasing solar emissivity luminosity will make earth too hot for C4 photosynthesis to occur, making terrestrial wiping out most (but not all) plant life impossible. Shortly after, on earth; by 1.1 billion years, nearly all surface life on the planet will be extinct and the oceans will partially begin to evaporate, increasing the atmospheric pressure to Venus-like levels, and making things even hotter.

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'' reveals that the main plot, [[TheHashshashin Assassins]] versus [[TheKnightsTemplar Templars]] fighting over ancient artifacts that can control the fate of mankind, is actually part of a larger plot by [[{{Precursors}} Those Who Came Before]].
