When I was searching for a lost dinosaur in the Congo, I explored a forest that seemed primordial, or from very long ago. This primordial world was thriving with life of all kinds that seemed very ancient. When I saw the primordial dinosaur, I thought I indeed was in prehistoric times. A primordial, fundamental fear arose in me, and I left for the modern world, never to return.
