Ever wondered, if your ancestors left a giant big-ass clock running from past thousands of years, evolutionary studies would be much easy and truncated by substantial unnecessary research? Life as we know, is moving forward in time. Life is a matter continuum, we wear the matter and leave it. Our forefathers were great people, they made several things which helped us get bigger and larger as one species.
I came across an article today and that led me here – http://longnow.org/clock/
A 10,000 year clock. Idea by Danny Hillis. He has put human time on a larger scale, from a year to a century to a millennium to a 10,000 years now . Imagine bells tolling after a 10,000 years. It blows my mind. I am much inspired and excited right now.
