Big History is a universal narrative that examines the timeline of our universe on the largest possible scale, drawing on astronomy, anthropology, biology, ecology, geology, literature, economics, political science, and sociology to understanding our collective past and possible futures. Big History begins with the Big Bang, follows the creation of stars and planets and the emergence of life on Earth, and extends to human beings and societies that have existed up to the present.
