    in some incidentals to his story, "Time Crime", in his Paratime series. His First Level, the most technologically advanced (on average), squandered the resources of Earth. One timeline - and ONLY one - made the breakthrough discovery  of paratime travel, which allowed them to survive by drawing off all the other worlds. The rest of the Level was divided into two sectors: Dwarma, where small surviving remnants of the population had reverted to a low-tech pastoral small-village lifestyle, where nobody asked for or expected very much and everybody was into everybody else's business to keep things staggering along - and Abzar, where there was nothing but vast empty wastelands because the shrinking population had fought bitterly to the very last over smaller and smaller crumbs and finally gone extinct (along with, it is implied, every other form of animal and most if not all plant life).

    We're headed full speed for Abzar.

    If it's
    Not your body,
    Then it's
    Not your choice
    And it's
    None of your damn business!
