Truly amazing, Jim. That makes me remember the Cosmic Calendar, popularized by Carl Sagan's "Cosmos". In that calendar the history of the Universe is one year. In such scale, the formation of the Earth occurs on September 3rd, the dinosaurs go extinct on December 30th and all human history (from the time of the caves) would be the very last few seconds before the end of the year.

The scale is 434.4 years per second in the Cosmic Calendar.
