The real world has diminished today mildly, there is no more of that world where there is only virgin landscapes with vegetation inhabited by wild animals. The world has been occupied with people, sky scrapers, industry facilities and locomotives. It has become so artificial, it is no longer nature. However, they say when a soldier is at war, there is always that bullet he/she saves to protect him/herself as the situation comes to the worst, so the world still has got those virgin landscapes and these are found in some parts of Africa.
