End of Ages
On the Generation, Purpose, and Corruption of the Natural Animal
On the Generation, Purpose, and Corruption of the Natural Animal is a historic tome by the ancient historian Aelus the Wise. Though much of it has been damaged by time, what segments remain offer an invaluable bestiary of “the Natural Animal,” a term Aelus used to describe all non-human species, a usage for which he has earned sharp criticism.
Much of the book concerns the life cycles and organizational structures of living beings. Many of the book’s claims have been discredited by further study, but the work as a whole remains influential. Portions of the text are often studied in even the most elementary of schools.
What follows are all excerpts from the tome that are contained anywhere within the Encyclopaedia Meridia.
