13.5 billion years of interactive history..

For those of you, like my college professors, that have been following this blog since I started writing it a few years ago, this is right in line with our theoretical discussions, and frankly right out of one of my papers about the ideal way to start the learning process of any topic you may want to engage.

That link takes you to an interactive timeline with 13.5 billion years of known historic events.

Each dot represents an entry in the Wikipedia. Keep in mind the Wiki is not a scholarly reviewed source and so what you absorb from it may or may not be accurate.

Never the less...

The paper I wrote concluding such was the way to go has proven to be, at this time, accurate.

It is not entirely equal to what I suggested... in my paper I proposed that one could link to other pieces of knowledge starting at any given point. The history line, at the link above, starts you with a solitary event. It does not offer continuous linkage out to other similarly related topic.

However, that is only a few clicks of the internet away anyway.

It is therefore suggestible that every movie ever made might be linked of such a timeline, and with that, every school course and every topic. And every photograph... And there isn't enough time.

Which is why scientists are now embarking on literally linking your brain to data transfer links. So you can, like in the movie The Matrix, and before that shows from the 60s and 70s that discussed sleep learning, so you will be able to download and learn the Oxford English Dictionary in moments, learn the painting technique of Picasso, and the engineering of ...

Well, you get the idea.

Now if money were so easily obtained...
