Timelapse Of The Future

From melodysheep –

We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos – to name a few.

This is a picture of the future as painted by modern science – a picture that will surely evolve over time as we dig for more clues to how our story will unfold. Much of the science is very recent – and new puzzle pieces are still waiting to be found.

To me, this overhead view of time gives a profound perspective – that we are living inside the hot flash of the Big Bang, the perfect moment to soak in the sights and sounds of a universe in its glory days, before it all fades away.  Although the end will eventually come, we have a practical infinity of time to play with if we play our cards right. The future may look bleak, but we have enormous potential as a species.

  2. Well, that was another mind blower video – Wow! Gosh! Golly! Clicking on the link requires a payment to see the video ( Patreon) but I think clicking on the vid goes to You Tube and a free viewing. It’s so long that I haven’t even seen the whole thing yet and after the first few trillion years ahead the time is beyond human understanding and the whole thing seems to lose relevance, to me anyway. I do get the message though that the span of our entire existence is now revealed as an almost invisible flash on a tiny speck of dust in The Universe. The Python’s Universe song showed me that years ago.

    On our human scale though, our world seems large and enduring and our history seems very long and colourful. If the prediction in the video is correct and we have over 50 million years before Antarctica melts, maybe we should not be worrying so much about Global warming.

    Thanks for posting, T
