Abruptly the sound ceased. 13.7 billion years ago. What remained was the start of everything as we know it today.
450-400 Million Years ago the first non-plant life on land appeared – arthropods. From this meagre start the oldest human family member appeared around 4.5 million years ago.
The hand - an instantly recognisable shape, a distinct trait of ‘man’, literally the point of connection between all races. Even 40,000 years ago, this was understood as a symbol of ‘being’, and a means of leaving ones indelible mark on the world though artistic expression.
The enlightenment and the progression of man - one of the most productive periods of science & philosophy in all of man’s history. The 17/18th Century produced some of the greatest theories and experiments which served to advance mankind. None more so than ‘Optiks’ by Sir Isaac Newton which is one of the major scientific works in history which disclosed the experiments conducted by Newton in the field of optics and refraction of light.
Financial crisis, escalating nuclear proliferation, food shortages, water scarcity, war, global warming – all hallmarks of the impact of mankind on the planet and fellow man. Now more than any other time could be termed ‘unpredictable’. As systems get larger, states fail, corporations trump government, people get supressed, the backlash grows and overspills into a reactionary force against the ‘systems’ that no longer hold the future promise of what was once taken for granted. Especially by a growing disenfranchised, disillusioned more questioning iME generation that has the power of the internet to disseminate and discern opinion.
