Sources & further reading:

The past is a vast and mysterious land that begins at the big bang and ends in the present, expanding with each passing moment. It is the home of everything that came before, the key to understanding our present. Here we find the most amazing creatures to ever roam our planet, hundreds of millions of species so diverse that our imagination cannot do them justice. Unfortunately the past carefully guards its secrets.

      E = MC^2 of science lose to sperm virus. Virus sperm are extremely sophisticated, sperm virus use 1 positron + suck 1 electron -- create lightning 0,1 voltage create energy for sperm virus to work, the function of viral sperms is to generate electricity for cells human and animals cells, the sperm virus enters the egg to create mitochondria, mitochondria produc millions lightning 0,1 voltage per second, so the humans and animals are always 37 degrees Celsius

    I want a Kurzgesagt animated game, where you start on earth and have to industrialise and expand into a multi planetary species, and it’s a little different every time you play it and different for everyone. It would be so insanely cool to devise strategies to build Dyson Spheres and moon bases aaaah

    I use to advicate, how some dinosaurs were not anything of reptile form, let alone shape, but since the Jurassic park movie scene of the kid controdicted, I forfeited the claim anyway, gravity was less or Earth tork was greater, so these species morphed to the grav force, as differ atmodphere, they had horizontal forms, not requiring long arms, a long tail became effective for low grav force balance or thick atmospheres like water and mist mixture of tropical.

    Even though we missed out on this era of time, the good news is, on a long enough timeline, there's comes a point where civilization invents a time machine, inevitably. So people 7,000 years from now can at least interact with that portion of time.
    On a long enough timeline, everything happens at least once, including me being a rapper.

    The title purports it's going to show us what dinosaurs looked like. Then when you watch it it's nothing but a long-winded explanation of why we don't even know what the majority of animals were that used to exist and have no idea what many of them looked like. I'm really deeply sick of the clickbait in titles.
