The Information Revolution

There is a definite acceleration in history.

The spread of agriculture civilizations, which lasted for approximately 100,000 years, took millenniums to spread across the world.

It took about 30,000 years to get from the appearance of homo sapiens to the beginning of the bronze age.

From the bronze age to the Roman Empire, it took about 3,000 years.

From the Roman Empire to the industrial revolution, it took about 1,700 years, which took only centuries to spread across the world.

Around the year 1950, the information revolution started, which began taking place in decades.

It took 5 million years for the homo australopithecines, the progenitors, to get to homo sapiens.

From the bronze age, it took only a couple of thousand years to get to the industrial revolution.

From the industrial revolution, it only took a couple hundred years to get to the information revolution.

Today, information goes around the world at almost the speed of light.

If you look at this on a bigger scale, it took approximately 4 billion years for evolution to get to the point where we had a bronze age; then the industrial revolution, and now the information revolution.

Imagine all of this on a clock and take history starting at midnight, our Sun (G-type star) is approximately 4.6 billion years old and will have an estimated life of 15 billion years. Our Earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old. This means it is now 8 o’clock in the morning.

It is time for us to wake up.

Hidden in plain sight, there are signs of planetary awaking.

We have been operating on autopilot up until now.
