The Big Picture in Seven Scales

A summary of the history of the universe, life on Earth and humanity, all belonging to the same picture shown in seven different time scales. My main purpose with this thing is to give a sense of how tiny our time scales are compared to the larger scheme of things, in one look.

Dates are of course approximate. If you think there are corrections to be made or very important things to add, please don’t hesitate to contact me – after reading the explanations I made here.
