Great talk. I always have a hard time remembering the time frames of the various epochs but I always like the three billion or so one where all life is single celled, it seems really cool that it took that long to form multicellular organisms and then in just a short eight hundred million years here we are.

Science is a portal to see into the mind of God ,not a portal to promote the folly of men's thinking ,about things they know to be false, so God does not get the credit for the wonders found in the Scientific discoveries that were his idea at the beginning of time when he got the universal clock ticking, and will one day stop that clock ticking ,for in eternity ( when all knees will bow and confess that he is Lord) that clock will no longer be needed.

This is a fantastic video. I was watching some other video and right after it ended this one started and I had no interest in watching to so it was going to be background noise while I played a game on my phone...then slowly my interest started to grow. So glad I decided to watch this because I personally learned a good amount from what David was saying then I started learning more than what he was even talking about. At the end of his speech he said his reasons for being there was to teach the future generations (and I assume generations here now) and I must say, he couldn't have bullseye any harder lol. Amazing job *Clap clap clap*

I haven’t heard this concept described as “big history,” but it’s an appropriate name. What has always amazed me about “big history” is how such a chaotic processes developed such complex wonders as life and the human brain, and inspired those curious creatures to not only ask “how,” but “why.”
Science and God - Bill Morgan
@Blake Brosenne Hello Blake, Bill is fine and thank you for the introduction. Blake, I would rather someone steal from me than lie to me. This man, with an eloquent accent and gentle voice, is lying to all the viewers. He clearly outlined the beloved 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, then did his best lies to tap dance around it. He called "each step is magical (at 2:57) and just before than he said each step was more complex than the prior. No evidence, no science, just philosophy to satisfy his world view because he knows the 2nd Law destroys his world vie. His world view is from simple, and chaos, to complex and ordered, I surmise his world view is atheist, but am not sure, but it sounds like it. The Universe demonstrates the validity of order and complexity to chaos and simplicity. This world view is the Christian world view despised by many, which is fine, people can despise anything they want, but to lie and say complexity is magical is dishonest, capricious, and anti-science. I hope you reply and share your opinions on my comments, and I would love to hear what you think about the 2nd Law and its implication to a God world view and if you think "magic" can usurp it. Thank you sir.

One little correction in his description of how dust clouds in space eventually form into solar systems including stars, planets and other bodies. It is not gravity that initially draws the small particles together, but rather it is electrostatic forces. They better explain how clouds of dust started condensing. Once enough of the space dust was thus pulled together, then gravity began to be a stronger force and caused the stars, planets and other bodies to be formed.
@Google User Interesting. I will look into this more. I have a chemistry background, so I cannot wrap my head around the fact that there was matter but no atoms/elements?? Matter has to be made of something, but it wasn't until the universe expanded did their become atoms, but there was really dense and hot stuff that magickly got there. I just can't see it all, but I am interested in this CMB radiation.

​@phillycheesesteak36 Cosmic microwave background is the proof you ask for.
There's a ton of "little corrections" throughout the video. I know he is limited on time, but he says all of this like it is fact with no room for error or disagreement, but in reality, most of it is likely not exactly like he says. Like do we really think that it is possible for everything in all of the universes fit inside something that was smaller than an atom. Come on ... there is no evidence of that and it is not at all practical.

Thanks for the talk, I am always hung up on what was before the Big Bang: and whatever was before it, why should it change? Then the immense improbability of life arising and living is just insane. Let alone that life not dying right away. Seems to be to big of odds to work out, but I always enjoy seeing quality presentations. I would say God is a more probable explanation.

His lesson that I hope makes us think is to understand the mistakes we no longer have to make, to give the new generations the chance to evolve and understand what to do to save the extraordinary beauty of mother earth: the mother of all existed and humanity existed. All that has happened from nothing is a mystery even if I am not a believer, I believe that the birth of the life of every organism in this universe is an inexplicable miracle!👏🙏🌌🌍❤️

Really excellent encapsulation of our history that is presented here, however, there is a major oversight and flaw. This is the view of the dying scientific paradigm of Newton and Descartes - it is based in an atomistic, mechanistic, dualistic, materialist reductionism, which quantum physics, ecology, systems theory, chaos theory, epigenetics, and mind-brain research, all show is obsolete and out-moded. The focus on collective learning is useful and powerful, and the emphasis on our creativity and adaptability is greatly important, and these are very valuable and worthy of applause. But the underlying mechanistic and materialist bias and paradigm, makes the entire narrative akin to how we today would view a Ptolemaic scholar talking about the history of the world. We are in the midst of a paradigm shift, as the great historian of science Thomas Kuhn called it. In the near future, when the paradigm shift is complete - and these things take decades and sometimes centuries - if we survive, we will look at this presentation of the history of the world as woefully inadequate and utterly crude. It is time we embraced a non-dualistic, holistic and organic view of life and the cosmos. The science is clear, and the evidence is conclusive. We - other than a minority of scientists, sages, thinkers and others - have simply not yet made the shift in consciousness to accord with it.

A fine clear-sighted summary. I personally think that multicellular organisms could have been given greater weight. For two billion years life was stuck at unicellular level before, apparently, mitochondria fell inside of archaea and the resultant symbiosis prospered. I think it's important too to consider what he said about collective learning being out of our control. Notice how influential large institutions are largely now a law unto themselves? The freedom of large corporations and intense global competition ensures that we will have no control over new AI, biotechnology, nanotechnology or quantum computing. Humans may only be a conduit for the Earth being able to send its material to other worlds before the Sun expands. This century looks like it will get harder as it goes.

I agree wholeheartedly, AlmostEthical. I don't remember him mentioning prokaryotes-to-eukaryotes either, FWIW. I personally feel the video amounts to "preaching to the choir". There's nothing here to convince anyone of anything, it is "merely" a highly-informative (and perhaps inspirational?) presentation.

I thank you. I need to note that animals also have accumulated learning that can be perceived through observation of their behavioural instincts and their accumulated learning is passed to their following generations through gens/DNA carrying instinct membrane. They also have collective consciousness and their experiences are shared via the grids of collective consciousness among their living generation. I think we have a little different perception, nonetheless I do truly appreciate you. Farbot Nia

@Farbot Zarathuštrötöma Nia Written language developed from record keeping on stocks in the early agrarian age, when the first cities started to form. And also codified religion started to appear as a support for leaders who needed to rule up to 10.000 or 20.000 people and needed more than personal fealty from their subjects, in order to tell said subjects what to do. Like, build that wall, dig those irrigation canals, go to war and die for me, etc. So a priest-caste telling the populace that Leader X ruled by divine permission and to doubt that was to doubt God Y and doom the individual / the individual's family / the entire city, punishable by banishment or death. Alphabets developed from keeping inventory, not from cave drawings. Cave drawings are artistic impressions of the artist's reality and/or his imagination. As such they are communication, but not a language as it is currently defined.

@Farbot Zarathuštrötöma Nia yes, every word you said is right. We as humans, need to take a step back and contemplate the monsters we created like AI and social media. It is high time, that we force these social media platforms to change their business model from advertisers-based to Humanity-based as due to this the people are getting divided in small groups and there is no room for people having a different perception. what are your views on this?
Farbot Zarathuštrötöma Nia
@Atif Sayyed Greetings Atif, I think, Men collective communication first came to be in form of body language, facial expression and meaningless vocal notes. then it gradually evolved to meaningful notes and sounds such as alphabets and words, and it eventually evolved into written form in a form of cave drawings, later to hieroglyphs, up to modern simple written alphabets in combination. However, humanity still is in its primitive and early stage of development of a profound communication format. Consider two people who speak American English, not necessarily speak the same language albeit they use English words both in spoken and written language. One person might employ words in a lousy cultural habit with no regard for the true implication and connotations of words, while the other person puts great effort to be selective and precise in usage of words in construction of a phrase. In that case, even these two persons use American English, but won't ever truly be able to understand each other. So, humanity needs to work on its collective communication format and further stages of development and evolution in the field of communication and language, as required . With this being noted, in regards to decoding and understanding the language of other animals, I think, humanity should put some effort to first understand the behavior, body language, facial expression of the animal kingdom in order to set the foundation to understand the vocal notes/sounds produced by animals in their communication. However, such a task can not be accomplished unless some prerequisite are met such as protection of wildlife or animal habitat, animal protection and illegalazation of animal slaughter for any reason, ceasing the consumption of animal flash as a source of nourishment, ban on using animal body parts in any form and etc. Atif, as you see humanity has a long way to go to reach its first stage of true evolution, but it does not have long or enough time to achieve it. I leave it to you to further embark on this thought since it is not feasible for me to write more comprehensively in this regard. Farbot Nia

Hi Farbot, Indeed. However I was wondering that the cognitive revolution happened with us and with that collective communication was formed, but still, why haven't we decoded/understood the language of the animals? It's a good question, isn't it?
Its Just Me
Its Just Me Yıl önce
The history of our world from beginning to end.. In the beginning, what came first, the action or the reaction? All things at rest stay at rest and all things in motion stay in motion. The universe accelerated and expanded and then cooled down as a beginning where there were no actions in motion and everything was at rest before this Big Bang. Consciousness being a reaction without an action creating the entire universe, being the center of all life, and a single instance of infinite temperature so bright that if you looked upon it, you would disintegrate. What is the geometrical shape of space? NASA measured density to observe that there was no observational difference between actual and critical density and then demanded that zero is the only measurement that is non-observable using a Newtonian gravitational field removing Relativity (including optics and thermodynamics, where the geometrical shape of space is altered with curvature expressing space as a geometrical shape) defined by the interior surface having no center and no parameter functioning rather than the mathematical fact that infinite is the equal and opposite of zero and zero and infinite are observed as the same without a cross-reference graphing between the 3 dimensions and the 4th dimension as zero has no beginning and no end, infinite is both the beginning and end, both are non-observable, and time is the only measurement in which we can observe a difference between them requiring the measurements of optics and thermodynamics. Space can be expressed as parallel circles with infinite curvature forming flat parallel lines in the interior surface, accelerated expansion in the parameter functioning, and a point of singularity observed in it's gravitational field of Dark Matter and Dark Energy. A circle around a circle until infinity always accelerates and expands larger. Every circle around the former circle acceleratingly grows larger. Actual density infinitely exceeds critical density with a point of singularity at the center having an infinite gravitational field of mass and energy altering the flat field of space without time. Infinite being non-observable, infinite curvature is not observed as 360. It is observed as zero curvature. The parallel circles form flat parallel lines and the center forms a flat line between each parallel line of the circles. The center of space is at every point of space right below the surface and the Sun is merely the cross-point where all directions meet and where the singularity accelerated and expanded cooling down forming the Sun as an infinite temperature would disintegrate everything around it. Black holes do not factually have infinite density. They have zero density. It is the point at which space breaks down and ceases to exist. However, the space and energy broken down is moved below surface into the singularity and back out through the Sun..if it does come back at all because deflation is factually a science. However, you observe the same point of singularity at all points of space so every black hole appears to have it's own infinite gravitational field that should implode the universe everytime one exists. When you look at space, you still use a 3d graphing calculator that you view as flat in front of you when it is not physically possible to view a 4 dimensional shape with a flat calculator. A graphing calculator of timespace would be the combination of two graphing calculators. So now that we got that out of the way.. What is "life", "consciousness", and "perception".. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction except when? Except when there is the scientific existence of "life", there is a reaction without an action. The scientific proof and meaning of "life" has no scientific meaning or substance to biology. Science can be in a state of existence but without the non-living universe, there are no objects to have reactions from actions. Consciousness without mass and energy would merely understand that it is never going to move anything around it and would only be a "thinking" existence. Thus, "hallucinations" and sensories have nothing to do with "consciousness". The added component of mass and energy to interact with consciousness is perception. Perception is your sensories. Perception is deception and clearly it is a state of disorder. Consciousness, reactions without actions, is measured by energy over space or more simply reacting to future spacetime before that spacetime exists. The speed of light moves faster in the conscious mind. A five year old able to know and understand quantum physics reacts to the future spacetime of being a senior in high school at the age of a Kindergartener. That is what he called the going outward. The speed of light moves the same going in but does not going out and going out is what we use to measure consciousness in IQ. To mathematically calculate this, you would have a 4d graph of 3d space being your flat graphing calculator and time being your second. You measure the distance between zero space (volume, density, mass), zero time (temperature, optics, thermodynamics, energy), infinite space, infinite time, and graph the intersecting point where you are located. In the end, there is an equal and opposite reaction to an infinite singularity having an infinite consciousness to expand the universe, in which Albert Einstein explained it pretty well. Political unrest will cause universal implosion. What is a thermonuclear bomb? It is a 4 dimensional bomb. Normal bombs are 3d bombs that have no major effect on the 4th dimension and the gravitational force of space that keeps space inflated. Nuclear bombs are nuclear chain reactions in the 4th dimension. This dimension is what keeps an equal force from the end of the infinite universe against the beginning of an infinite universe preventing it from imploding against itself. Mass has a much heavier force of gravitational field but in that same hand it also has less of an ability to alter the equal force required for inflation because even if you explode it, it still exists. That is how the universe was created, explosion. The gravitational force of energy is a cushion against the collision of mass objects in space that molds around the shape of all mass preventing collision that would cause a breakdown of spacetime by the collision of mass as all things in motion stay in motion and interestingly enough, when you explode something, you create a lot of energy. Now decrease the electrical charge of space and the gravitational field of Dark Energy and Dark Matter will push against the gravitational field of the mass of space and the objects in it, such as Earth, without any collision to slow down all things in motion staying in motion. The end.

Some of us are learning at warp speed. The masses, however, remain manipulated by politicians to regurgitate that which they're taught, not for their benefit, but for the benefits of the powerful elite. Excellent points, David. Never forget, however, that personal acceleration requires a Goldilock's level of adversity, enough to spur one on, but not enough to break us.

We went from atoms to stars to elements to planets to molecules to DNA to cells to variant species. Each Threshold Moment coming at a faster rate with more material to use. Then we became aware of the Universe. Or, the Universe acquired SELF AWARENESS from our brains, developed from earlier species, developed from cells, developed from DNA Data Packs built upon molecules, built upon atoms. As long as there are any intelligent sentient beings the Universe has SELF AWARENESS.
In the advent of chaos and confusion this world is becoming- here is a great reminder on the importance of sticking to our core. To be human and learning from our history; to be progressive and never stop learning; to collectively learning and inspire other; and not to be very resistant to changes.

I came here because my experiences on Out of body travel made me awake&aware. The portal to this higher realms, dimensions, is within us. it is the seat of the soul, also known as pineal gland, third eye. once you meditated in your dreams and focus your Consiousness in the middle of the eyes, it will open up a like spiral wormhole tunnel and your Consiousness will travel through it in the speed of light and you will see how vast our universe really is. “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.”

The Big Bank presumably resulted in all particles moving away from other particles like the surface of a balloon being expanded infinitely or a bomb exploding - sort of like an anti-gravity occurrence. It that is the case, how could any of these particles ever approach each other and form progressively larger objects via gravity or some other force?

You gotta love the subtlety of the camera editing. In the exact moment where he says "which explain why you and I are smaller than..." they select the shot where the people look colossally smaller than the place they are, giving the whole message an impressive weight to the point he is demonstrating... perhaps involuntary, but still beautifull

I understand and have great respect for this man who I've never seen or heard talk before, He has real passion and feeling for the future he's building and that's going to help revolutionize the way we educate, not only in English, but in other dialects. I don't really think the universe was ever a baby or unborn child like our chemicals limit us. Space is messed up man but truly really honestly believe when we look up we see what's been going on forever. Not God. Not Destiny. Not some 5-legged Rah or Sun god. Just Space dust infinitely churning out Light and Dark. Part Light and Part-Music, or magic and that's what I am. I am the music.

Very eloquent and passionate story. I’d like to know the scientific evidence for any of it though. Every scientist changes the number of millions and billions of years in which the universe created itself. None of these theories are observable, repeatable nor consistent between scientists. The Big Bang theory as well as the theory of evolution contain much myth and “theory” and it’s the only thing taught in schools. I’d suggest finding a better and more detailed story that does not start with the word theory and it doesn’t take place millions and billions of years ago. It’s in Genesis 1.

Complexity does not just happen. There has to be intelligence first. Just look at ourselves first. We have created so much, but in order to create something we must be 'creative'. Intelligence does not come from non-intelligence just as life does not come from non life. Which takes us right back to the first creation - but we miss that intentionally and say we create all things. A car did not create itself, nor does a ship, a jet, a building ..you name it. We created them all. If so, who created the first human? Investigate that, and everything falls into place.

I listen to these very genius people but my simple mind always has the same question. How did something come from nothing? At some point no matter how many billion or zillion of years we go back even if other galaxies and dimensions are considered something (energy or matter or whatever) came into being from nothing. The great "uncaused cause" I guess. Until science can answer that I will remain low IQ and believe in creation. The great "uncaused cause" would have to be God by default and all life would be made/created through it. I do see micro evolution as relevant but the macro evolution aspects take more faith for me than believing in a form of creation. The part about protecting this wonderful gift of a planet we have been given I completely agree with. No matter what you believe in this planet is pretty awesome and we can strive to better it in many ways. I'm not trying to convince anyone one way or the other, it is just my thoughts

Since I was a child and I began to understand countries and politics, it has always struck me that the larger the organization is, the more childish and petulant it behaves. I wonder if this observation could be connected to the collective global brain?

It always amazes me how such intelligent people can talk about nothing to something so easily, as though it actually makes any sense without the Unmoved Mover, the Uncaused Cause. Where matter, time, heat, space, energy all comes from--they never actually explain and then deny the idea of a supernatural force to explain the supernatural result of life itself. Something and someone so powerful, so knowledgeable, the source of truth itself... I pray that they meet their Creator before time runs out.

The entire language of this talk speaks of matter anthropomorphically... it is as if matter is living, conscious and decision making which is mistaken (universe 'creates', energy 'does things', universe 'builds' complexity, gravity 'compacts', stars 'create' or 'die', atoms 'combine', dna 'copies itself' or 'learns' 'building' diversity etc). This use of language is deceptive as it suggests it answers the 'why' questions when science simply answers the 'how' questions. This is the problem of empiricist based scientists crossing the boundaries of metaphysics-crossing the line from 'how' to 'why'.

Both science and religion have a lot in common - and that's their belief in miracles. At least religious people are honest enough to call miracles "miracles". Whereas scientists call miracles " threshold events". I believe that the Universe was created by the Big Bang - and that in the beginning, the whole of creation was compacted into something smaller than an atom. However I also believe that the creator - chose to create a close relative (with an important message for humanity i.e. pacifism, unconditional love and forgiveness) by making a zygote appear in the womb of a Jewish virgin living in the Roman province of Palestine - (not in the usual way) about 2,000 years ago. Should I be ridiculed for believing in any of those miracles?

Every complex system teeters on the stability of the previous complex system built before it, making it exponentially more difficult to develop a system of complexity more than a few levels deep.
