When Time Became History - The Human Era

** UPDATE: Calendars are sold out on the US-Shop but you can still get them from the EU-shop: shop-eu.kurzgesagt.org/ **
For the fifth time, we present to you the Human Era Calendar for the year 12,021 - this time it is all about the journey of humanity, beginning tens of thousands of years ago, leading into the revolution of agriculture, to ancient high civilizations and the beginning of modern times, culminating in a vision for our future. You can get the limited Edition now until we sell out and then never again. As always the calendar features 12 illustrated pages printed on high quality paper in Europe and the US. And this year the cover is especially shiny. The calendar will look great on your wall and let you dream about a glorious future. We truly have come far as a species!

Kinda like how the bird with the longer beak gets the deeper grub, and the ones with the shorter beaks get nothing. evolution marches on.

    except for the Koranderthals...........they are stuck at 600AD. But oh my god, here we have the ridiculous grain/seeds theory.......................that people thousands of years ago selectively bred useless grass seeds, with no meaningful results for hundreds of generations until they had grain seeds that actually had productive calories...........what utter bollocks. The sumerian history clearly explains where grains, and mankind came from. Homo sapiens is not millions of years old..............its only about 200,000 years, go read the human genome project results that align with the sumerian history.

    Hi sir. You are requested to make a video on this: 1. When does the sun's magnetic polarity get reversed? 2. What impact will it have on the Earth? 3. Recently in 2020, the sun's polarity has been reversed, for the 25th cycle. When was the first cycle occurred? 4. Approximately when will the 48th (final) cycle occur? 5. What will happen, when the final 48th cycke occurs? 6. Whenever the first cycle had occurred, before that had no polarity reversal cycle ever occured on the sun? 7. Will the sun never ever change its polarity, after the 48th (final) cycle? 8. If the answer to question 7 is that the polarity will stilll be changed even after that, then why is the 48th cycle considered as the final cycle? 9. If after the 48th cycle, any new fresh cycle starts, then what will be different in the cycle? Why will be a fresh new cycle and not the 49th cycle?

    This video is completely wrong and unscientific right from the first 35 seconds. 1. The longer humans live, the less children they have. Our population will not grow that much more. 2. On top of this, humans will not become an interplanetary species. We will eventually force evolution on ourselves with things like genetic engineering, biomechatronics, neural networks etc. Creating a new species beyond homosapien that can actually learn more and do more as well as live far longer. Humans will begin to go into decline and we will likely become bear extinct at some point. This new super human will be leaps and bounds ahead of us technologically and we will be left in the wind. Like an animal on the side of the road. We'll see the advanced world around us. But we won't comprehend most of it.

    Aaron M. Lambert, Ph.D.3 dager siden

    *As a Harvard Neuroscientist, the wonders and achievements of the human mind are built upon abstractions of the sensory-motor interface, of which language has been the most foundational. I'll elaborate on that later but, first, let's take a trip back in evolutionary history.* Much of the evolutionarily older parts of our brain - aside from dealing with homeostatic control of internal states (e.g. heart rate, respiration, satiety, digestion, wake-sleep, hormonal flux) - are explicitly wired to receive real-time sensory inputs and transform them into adaptive motor outputs. Even invertebrates, such as worms and insects, have nervous systems that exquisitely fulfill these critical tasks. For vertebrates like us, our spinal cord, hindbrain, and midbrain are largely dedicated to these real-time sensorimotor transformations, in addition to autonomically regulating our internal states. This comprises much of the brains and functionalities of simpler vertebrates, such as fish and reptiles. The advent of mammals brought about an expansion of subcortex conferring more complex emotionality in the service of caregiving, and a cerebral cortex for more flexible learning & strategizing for solving problems. Our cats and dogs, of course, are endowed with these capacities. But even they lack the formidable human capacity to abstract and transcend the sensorimotor interface. Language is our most foundational abstraction of the sensorimotor landscape. We look at an object and associate it with an arbitrary label - a word - and construct arbitrary vocalizations and other abstract motor outputs (writing symbols and letters) in relation to the sensory stimulus (the physical object). In so doing, we are able to take these associations - words with objects - and build more and more associations upon them to make sense of the world. We first dichotomize the world of word-objects into big/small, light/dark, fast/slow, and good/bad. From there, we can categorize the constellation of word-objects into convenient bins for comparisons and interactions. Beyond space, we can perform the same abstraction with time by categorizing it, binning it, and even discretizing it into infinitesimal points in the service of calculus and elaborately precise computations. In so doing, we can make accurate predictions of the future for many purposes. Speaking of the future, and also the past, our ability to think outside of our current physical space and time is another key ingredient to our dominance over the rest of the animal kingdom. But all these human-specific wonders of our minds often go awry and undermine our optimal functionality. Yes, our cerebral endowments of hindsight and foresight expand our cognitive landscapes beyond the linear sensory-motor interface known as the present. But this often makes the present elusive, yet all the more vital to embrace. Otherwise, we're just living in the memories of our future selves. Consider getting present to the moment more often, which is still possible even if you need to reflect on the past or plan for the future. Do those activities in the present as well. It's where all your power lies. Vids coming soon.

    ​@Tecumseh Zacateco I agree that they had been more developed than Europeans in the fields of astrology and medicine, mostly because the Europeans were horribly backwards in those. However, they did not have domesticated beasts of burden, ergo they did not use the wheel, ergo no developed and efficient land infrastructure. They did conduct most of their trade on small boats, which was certainly impressive, but how was that even comparable to the ship building expertise of the Europeans? It wasn't. Also no advanced metalworking, which means their weapons were literally worse than bronze age weapons from the old world. They basically had what was comparable to the ancient Mezopotamian empires. They did not impact nature greatly simply because they did not have the industrial capacity to do so. As for their social structure, they might had some interesting/efficient systems, but it's not really my cup of tea so I won't go into that.

    ​@Tecumseh Zacateco They only banded up against the conquistadors when they were specifically targeted by them. However, they were more than happy to aid in the subjugation of rival tribes, and that pattern was pretty much exploited by the europeans ad infinitum.

    ​@Tecumseh Zacateco Why were they poor if they lived in an awesome utopia?

    Don't you think calling the post-agricultural revolution era "the human era" is a bit condescending of you?
