Let's assume someone had been making a movie of planet Earth from the beginning of Earth 4.56 billions years ago up to today.
The film is developed, and now we watch the movie backwards. From today, all the way back to the beginning of our planet.
EACH SECOND in the movie amounts to 100.000 years, counting backwards
tic...tic-..tic... -100.000 years ... -200.000 years ... -300.000 years ...and so on.
Even with each second in the movie spanning 100.000 years back in time, the entire movie would last 12.5 hours.
We would turn on this epic 12.5 hour movie, and the entire modern history of man would be vanished in the very first 1/25th of a second. (4000 years).
Means, the instant we turn on the movie to watch Earth's history, all/most civilizations and cultures are gone basically so fast we haven't even
realized that the movie started yet.
In the first two seconds of this epic long movie, the entire modern man homo sapiens will be gone. Within 20 or so seconds, the entire species
"homo" will be gone including all the very early variants which didn't even really look human yet.
What comes now is a 12.5 hour long movie where man doesn't even exist....the next 10 hours we can observe all kinds of life, of course it gets less
and less complex as the movie goes on. Only in the last 2.5 hours of this movie any life on the planet has finally vanished.
Other interesting facts: Invention of electricity would be gone in the first 1/500th of a second.
Invention of space travel would be gone in the first 1/1785th of a second after starting the movie.
