First humans ever born. Not a member of the Homo Sapien species, but a member of the Genus Homo (Homo Erectus). They were born in East Africa.
The Cognitive Revolution kick-started history and started culture.
Fire was used regularly by humans as weapons or cooking food.
Fire was used for the first time by humans. This was a significant step for us humans as it put our position in the food chain a few places higher. This was the beginning of our climb to the top of the food chain.
Homo Sapiens, our species, as well as the only human species left on earth, were first born.
Homo Sapiens arrived to Arabia and then into Eurasia, where other human species were.
Homo Sapiens are the only human species left alive.
Agricultural revolution starts taking place. Humanity starts to settle down in more permanenet houses. The population of humans starts to skyrocket, from around a million to around 27 million in 7000 years. Unfortuantely, so does plague and disease. Animals are domesticated.
Humans currently live a Hunter-Gatherer lifestyle, where most people have to move every day or at least every week.
Industrial Revolution begins. Life satisfaction and living standards at all time low, and extremeb poverty at all time high.
Empires like the Roman empire is created. The cultural influence is massive.
Imperialism begins. The Chinese and Indian economy own 80% of the world's GDP, but after a few more decades, China will only have around 5% of the world's GDP.
Rapid colonization of Africa begins around now. Africa gets split up into wierd land borders and will take a long time to recover from this colonization (It still hasn't today).
WW1 begins. The Tri-Partite agreement vs the Triple Alliance.
WW1 is over with Germany losing. The world signs a treaty and vows to never have a war this size ever again... for a while.
Germany breaks the unfair treaty and starts WW2 led by Hitler.
The most powerful weapon ever used was dropped last week, ending WW2.
The first atom is split. No other organism has ever got here (or get to the cognitive revolution part either).
A small leap for a man, a giant step for mankind, and a man was put onto the moon.
China's economy is failing, the world believes they will never catch up and probably collapse.
China has a sudden economic reform!
People are being lifted out of extreme poverty fast!
The population count of humans rises to 1 billion. Population growth during the agricultural revolution seems like nothing compared to this.
2 Billion people on planet earth.
Population: 3 billion.
4 billion humans alive.
5 Billion people. These are really getting close to each other.
7 Billion people
The scientific revolution. Humans admitted their ignorance about many things and the hunt for knowledge was on!
