Big History

“Big History seeks to understand the integrated history of the Cosmos, Earth, Life and Humanity, using the best available empirical evidence and scholarly methods.” – International Big History Association ​1​

“Big History is the study the past over great spans of time so that important themes trends and developments reveal themselves in ways they otherwise wouldn’t yielding a deeper understanding of why events occurred as they did. Big History embraces all the disciplines of knowledge that humans have constructed to date and uses them and multi-disciplinary toolkit to unlock the secrets of the past.” – Professor Craig G. Benjamin, Ph.D.,​2​

TrueDemocracy.Global uses Big History to understand trends in the evolution of humanity and communication technology to understand how it effects our social structures and envision where it may lead in the future in the light of evolving technologies such as blockchain.
