Human Existence

Do me a favor.

Count to five.

Those five seconds you just counted,

Compared you your whole life...

(Five seconds out of billions of seconds)

Is how long recent human civilization has been around...

Compared to the age of the universe.

(~2000 years out of billions of years)

The math? Sure:

14.6 billion yrs    x      1 yr        x        1 day       x          1 hour            x        Your age  
     2000 years        365 days           24 hours           3600 seconds          

To simplify this equation, take your age and multiply by .23 to find a closer estimate in seconds.
