This is one of those articles about time that are both fascinating and horrifying at the same time: https://waitbutwhy.c...the-future.html
Perspective is an interesting subject. Time just isn't the same without it.
This example is kind of surreal, and would probably make Beyonce lose her shit:
The Wonder Years aired from 1988 and 1993 and depicted the years between 1968 and 1973. When I watched the show, it felt like it was set in a time long ago. If a new Wonder Years premiered today, it would cover the years between 2000 and 2005.
This is where it started to get especially disconcerting, lol:
As for you, if you’re 60 or older, you were born closer to the 1800s than today.
Today’s 35-year-olds were born closer to the 1940s than to today.
There are a number of other examples in the article, and the site is worth a browse. I definitely recommend checking out this rather ambitious series that seeks to explain the human race (or rather why we do what we do) throughout it's/our entire history: https://waitbutwhy.c...tory-of-us.html
