Human history can be divided into three major periods in very much the same way that the development of a human embryo consists of three trimesters.

All throughout our past, we’ve been expanding, conquering, building, destroying, restructuring, and rebuilding again as we’ve continued evolving. Humanity continued to spread throughout the world, until finally, we conquered everything. A human fetus reaches this condition in the 38th week of its development.

For a child, the mother’s womb is the most comfortable place to be, and yet, this stage of development is merely an intermediate stage. The goal is to be born, and it is therefore impossible to remain inside of the mother’s womb. During delivery, a mother’s body produces an enormous amount of adrenaline in order to help the child be born, since the process of delivery is quite difficult and painful for the child.

Similarly, we as humankind have reached a peak stage in our development, and we cannot continue existing according to the principles we previously designed. Even though we have no idea what to do next, this doesn’t mean that there is no general plan for our development. Nature operates its own program that impacts us, forcing us to be born through crises, disasters, epidemics, and wars. After this birth, the child continues to develop, attaining a totally different world outside of the womb.

    I must say your videos are very stunning and thought provoking. Each few paragraphs you put with each of your videos lets the real message sink in and make me think even more. I can’t even fathom the process of getting these amazing and beautiful shots you have here in Embryo; and the flow of the video is perfect.
    The analogy that you manifest here between the development of planet earth and the birth of a child is an astounding idea. This video gives me hope in that the world is continuously developing, and that all of the tragedy we undergo is the same as a storm in that new life will be born out of it. Thank you for sharing this.
