This is something I was thinking about today, while listening to Linkin Park's "Crawling" remixed with sound-clips from the September 11th attacks.
Since both are from the same time period, I felt like I was there while listening.
That's not really my point, though. And this isn't really something to take seriously, just to think about. The advancement of culture means the
collective mind involved moves on and changes over time. We often feel disconnected from older time periods because the culture was so different then.
However, if the culture suddenly resurfaced, we might feel a connection or at least a resonance of that time period.
Have the last ten years been a long time? Yes, because so many events have taken place, and the culture has advanced (although personally I think it
is decaying to the point of near-death and then resurrection, that isn't what I mean by "advancing"). But if Earth had been sitting here without any
life, it would have been no time at all.
Also, I would like to make the point that if the culture didn't advance, it would seem like a lot less time had passed even if there were people
present. Well, maybe not, because where there are people there is advancement of culture.
But let's think of a room boarded up for 100 years then opened. Has time passed?
