History does have direction, not a Linear Direction but rather a multi directional, dimensional direction. Action-Reaction fussed to Chaos Theory. One event generates a sequences of Reactions. Those Reactions became Actions, generating ∞ number of sub reactions, in 50.000 of years.
We normally hate History because it has been teach in One single direction. Unreal and hard to associate. In America, History has been touch as sketches, independent events with little or none Global Context and Interaction.
History is a Net, that tide us all together, sometimes we can see it, many times we don’t. But it does, constantly and in faster speed. If you want you can compare Computers Evolution to World History. We started slow, inefficient and requiring enormous amounts of recourses and effort. With time, computers have become faster and faster, capable to change the way we interact and we know about each other, a lot more efficient, lest resources need it and it keep improving in speed, capabilities and efficiency. History is the same.
It’s Imperative to realize History is necessary to be learn as a way of understanding from where we came, where we are going and how deep our Actions (as single person, as town, city, Nations) impacts billions all over the world.
Remember, we all live in an Island call Earth. Beside that, we all are interconnected in time, and space. We can’t run from each other, our lives depends in others lives constantly. Wake up, there is an entire world out there, a world you are part of it.
