The cosmic calendar is a perfect tool for making a great resume of how Planet Earth came to being and us humans started our own journey trhough it.

Amazing graphic and beautiful topic, 

Unfortunately much of the story about the first visionaries of the cosmos was not and is not from the time of Galileo, the Jewish writings as the Talmud and others speak very clear of the cosmos and it gives us precisely the numbers of stars and galaxies in the universe and much ,much more which the human mind can not comprehend, 

the journey into life is on its own a journey to infinity.

@S. Ponte  It is not possible that the Talmud gives the precise number of stars and galaxies in the Universe. Please check your facts.  No theistic religious texts have anything factual to say about the nature of Reality.  (I do not include Buddhism or Taoism in this -- those are not religions in the theistic sense.)

Indeed, when the Talmud was written (oldest full manuscript: 1342) no one understood the nature of stars, and the very existence of galaxies was completely unknown.
