Chapter 1 Once Upon a Time(5/7)

第一章 很久很久以前(5/7)

Now, try to imagine 1,000 million years! At that time there were no large animals, just creatures like snails and worms. And before then there weren't even any plants.

现在,想象一下十亿年。当时还没有大型动物,只有一些像蜗牛和蠕虫的生物。再往前看,连植物也没有。

The whole earth was a 'formless void'. There was nothing. Not a tree, not a bush, not a blade of grass, not a flower, nothing green.

整个地球是一片“混沌之境”。了无一物。没有树,没有灌木,没有一花半草,没有一点绿色。

Just barren desert rocks and the sea. An empty sea: no fish, no seashells, not even any seaweed. But if you listen to the waves, what do they say? 'Once upon a time ... '

只有荒芜的岩石和海洋。海洋里一无所有,无鱼,无贝壳,甚至没有海草。但如果你聆听浪花的声音,它们在说着什么?“很久很久以前……”

Once the earth was perhaps no more than a swirling cloud of gas and dust, like those other, far bigger ones we can see today through our telescopes.

曾经这地球也许只是一团聚集起来的气云与尘埃,就像我们今天能透过望远镜看到的那样。

For billions and trillions of years, without rocks, without water and without life, that swirling cloud of gas and dust made rings around the sun.

千百亿年里,这团没有岩石,没有水,没有生命的气云与灰尘环绕着太阳旋转。这里语序很不确定
