@Rajoul ... I see you last posted 5 years ago.  I had barely started here back then.  Welcome back ;-)

3000 BC is approximately the start of the Egyptian Old Kingdom.  1400 BCE is approximately the end of the Byzantine Empire.  Were the years in-between the last time humanity made sense?

My answer is the real date of crossing the ocean to Americas.

Also it's not just near the ending of the Byzantine Empire, it is also nearly the Western invention of the printing press. But he is going to say something trivial or home made version of a hisotrical event. OK, bets are open.

For the record, I wanna go with pizaaaaaaaa and beer!

Native Americans piss on Vikings and Spaniards ;-)  They got here very BC.  Per Rousseau, y'all should live in teepees and hunt bison.

800 BC would be dead bang between the two dates.

What even is 'time'?

St Augustine of Hippo give the first Western answers on time and astronomy ...

"NEITHER TIME PAST NOR FUTURE, BUT THE PRESENT ONLY, REALLY IS. ... What, then, is time? If no one asks me, I know; if I wish to explain to him who asks, I know not." ... which seems to be to be borrowed from Buddhism ;-)

"The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell." ... this was what astrologers were called back then.

It is essential ;-) ... otherwise nothing would happen.  And there is nothing more boring than nothing itself ;-))

Yep.  I think the oldest surviving Greek writing, in the new Alpha Beta ... was the Dipylon inscription of 740 BCE.  400 years of Greek Dark Ages would have been approved of by Pol Pot.  The Sea People's were like the Khmer Rouge.

My lifetime so far has seen more change than 4400 years in between, so as yours who are alive in 2021.

And the acceleration of change are getting even faster.

Alvin Toffler--Future Shock.  He wrote about this in 1984; how change effects individuals and groups.  And that change is happening at an ever quickening pace.

But we still experience one day at a time. Even the atomic bomb slid right in without affecting the average person for years.

Well, yes and no.  We do experience one hour at a time or one day at a time.  But we can compare how we live compared to how we used to live.  It is easy for me to recall how I lived in my 40's, 50's, etc to now.  And it is easy for me to project into the future what I can, or should, expect to experience in the future.  (And I do understand that one cannot accurately project the future, but many do anyway)  Technology is also a big unsettling feature of our world.  20 yrs ago I would not have thought I'd have a fucking phone in my pocket 24/7 nor even begin to consider what it can do; calling people is now only one feature of that computer (phone) in my pocket.  Change is constant and change instills fear in many, many people.

I mean, there's a political party in the United States based almost entirely on fear of change. Yes, let's go back in time, back when overt racism and sexism was socially acceptable, when your computer would screech at you when you connected to the internet, central air didn't exist and you just had to suffer through extreme heat every Summer, and the only time there was anything to watch on TV was early Saturday morning. Sounds great.
