History of the World in Two Hours

Today on Far Future Horizons we voyage back in time some 13.7 Billion Years to tell the epic story of our Universe, World and humankind.

From the Big Bang that forged our Cosmos till the present day in just two hours. Well in actual fact, we are going to do it in just one hour, twenty seven minutes and fifty seven seconds. Approximately a half hour of commercials were removed to enhance your viewing pleasure.

This is a prime example of Big History, which examines history in terms of long time frames using a multidisciplinary approach. It combines numerous disciplines from science and the humanities and explores human existence in the context of this bigger picture. I invite my readers to check the Big History Project's website. In Fact you can take a short course on Big History via the Open Culture website.
