"Millions and millions of years - slowly and now the climate had grown colder

Great mountains rolled by in the sky

Glaciers formed and spread over the land where once there were swamp climb up and now there were desserts - Many of the plants of the scene before had disappeared and cone bearing trees took over the leading place in the plant world and reptile - animal layer had eggs or dry land took over the leading role from the amphibians

Act I Scene 6."
