Joel N. Myers, the founder of Accuweather, states that 99% of all innovation and development has happened in the past 100 years whereas humans have been on the planet for 100,000 years. That means that 99% of all progress has occurred in 1/10th of 1% of human history.
When it comes to technology, Myers states that we are creating 2.5 billion of gb of data every day and of all data that has ever been recorded and entered...95% has been created within the past 2 years.
A company has recently found a way to "encode" data onto DNA strands. One gram of DNA can hold up to 455 exabytes of data.
The company estimates that there is approximately 1.8 zettabyte of data in the world in 2011. That would be the equivalent of about 4 grams (about of teaspoon) of DNA to hold all information from Pluto, to Shakespeare to every video, post, etc on Facebook, instagram, tiktok and snapchat today.
If you unraveled all of the DNA in your body, it would span about 34,000,000 miles reach Pluto and back a total of 13 times. Pluto is 2,660,000,000 miles away.
Encode All Data onto only 4 grams of DNA:
Your DNA Can stretch from Earth to Pluto 13 times:
Was reading an article. It says that 99.99999999% of all ordinary matter is empty space and that if you took out all of that empty space from our atoms, the entire existence of humanity (all 7,000,000,000 people) would fit into the volume of a sugar cube. The article states,
The size of an atom is governed by the average location of its electrons: how much space there is between the nucleus and the atom’s amorphous outer shell.
So when you think about how significant we are to the planet, the large cities that we have built, the inventions we have created and made possible, the life-altering technology that has been developed, happened by something so tiny to comprehend. We appear large, massive entities, some occupying more of that realm of "substance" than others, but still in the grand scheme of things...very tiny indeed.
For more information about this concept, check out the article here: https://www.sciencealert.com/99-9999999-of-your-body-is-empty-space?fbclid=IwAR2UtvR3EzDQvEkvzbHDl32QgEeG4UL4lhGC12PC8uKXGmhWqCBncH-RjDA
Earth has been around for 3,800,000,000 years. If the entire history of the Earth was condensed into a 24 hour period,, humanity would have existed with only 1 minute and 17 seconds before midnight. In the grand scheme of things humans have done more damage to the earth and changed the entire trajectory of the planet in a very short amount of time.
So when you think about time on earth, some things take a very long time while other things can literally change in a matter of seconds and minutes, like the existence of humanity. Pretty cool when you think about how "insignificant" we our in the amount of time we have existed but how much significance we have played on planet earth.
