I always start from here, and zoom backwards whenever somebody mentions something historical and I get a ‘feeling’ for the time. Works in the other direction too.

Welcome to my brain. I always start from here, and zoom backwards whenever somebody mentions something historical and I get a ‘feeling’ for the time. Works in the other direction too.

And for me, I _hate_ the missing pieces. Our education in history needs drastic improvement and most historical materials out there are VERY biased, 1/2 of it is crap – the ignorance of the authors and modern biases sticking out worse than some situation where body parts a person is trying to hide is/are sticking out…

We’re taught history in a ‘jumping around’ fashion, usually all to support some kind of conclusion, COMPLETELY ignoring context, the surrounding cultures, the ‘feel’ of the times, and in the process, INSERTING their own biases, usually involving people long ago stupid, we smart…. except for that ONE VISIONARY WHO SAW THE FUTURE/SAW THE TRUTH AMIDST ALL THE SURROUNDING IGNORANCE…… ugh. such an old script.
