I was reading that the the Caspian sea, 18,000 years ago was a grassy basin and then the climate changed and ice caps melted and the fresh water filled it, rising at the rate of an inch a day for some periods.
There have been so many different pasts and we know so little of them. Usually it's just some version of medieval Europe and the noble savage to accept or reject. And it's not as if history has been going that long, no more than 100,000 years.
When we compare ourselves to others we always seem to come up short. When I see photos of myself from my 20s I think I look pretty good now, but then I just felt I wasn't as good as other people my own age.
