Here is the accompanying website. Big History Project. Looking at things holistically like this is a great approach. It's like no history lesson I've ever had!

Hi Ekuma,

Great post. History is what it is. But, on a deeper level analysis of "time" itself -- it may be only observation of time that makes cosmological and human history seem linear to us. Linear time has a problem on both the quantum level (at the Planck length) and at the cosmological level over great distances in the cosmos (light-cone theory). The 13.7 billion years old history of the universe is very geocentric and ignores both light-cone and quantum theories. (e.g. we earthlings use an explorer space craft, launched from earth, to measure the temperature differences in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation and then extrapolate within cosmic inflation theory.)

A perhaps "wacky" but equally plausible explanation could use the the "five minute" hypothesis (or omphalos hypothesis or Last Thursdayismis) that our history is programmed and the universe was created recently together with records and traces indicating a greater age.

There is no way of "proving" one theory over the other and perhaps that is how the "Programmer" wants it (our knowledge of this) to remain.
