When Alexander Hartdegen and Mara are in the memorial area covered with signs from New York, Alexander quotes a bible verse. He quotes Ecclesiastes 1:4 "One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever."

It is impossible for the moon to remain in scattered fragments after such a long time as 800,000 years. By that time, gravity would have caused the fragments to fall back together into one contiguous moon or to form a ring around the Earth. However, the later shot of the moon in the far-flung future shows that it is continuing to fracture, indicating that the detonation that cased it to fragment in the first place was much deeper than simply a few stray fragments, and the stretching between the two time periods shows that the pieces are becoming the aforementioned ring.
