A Perspective on Time


Dino: This is a little american-centric but nicely zooms out from an hour to the time-scale of the universe in gradual steps showing key milestones along the way: the original (linked under the paragraph below has more detail but is not quite as visually pleasing.

“To try to grasp some perspective, I mapped out the history of time as a series of growing timelines—each timeline contains all the previous timelines (colors will help you see which timelines are which).  All timeline lengths are exactly accurate to the amount of time they’re expressing.”
