On-line resources on this topic include a Macquarie University (Australia) Coursera on-line course about “Big History,” or the evidence based narrative of the series of events from the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago, to the formation of earth 4.5672 billion years ago, to the origins of life about 3.8 billion years ago, to the eventual appearance of humans 200,000 years ago, and then to our agricultural, industrial, and digital civilizations.  A series of MOOCs in which Big History is applied to solving contemporary complex problems is here.
