双语美文:这些历史事件居然是同时发生?我已凌乱

45 [ en ] When we try to put historical events into perspective, we often simplistically divide things into 'old days' and 'modern times,' because our brains can often struggle with the concept of time. But what happens when things that you would consider to belong to the contemporary world are actually much older than we think? It jolts us out of our comfortable categorization and forces us to reasses the way we percieve history. That can only be a good thing, right? We here at Bored Panda have compiled a series of historical events that surprisingly took place at more or less the same time, and will make you think twice about how you look at the past. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and prepare to have your mind blown! [ /en ] [ cn ] 人类的大脑一遇到 " 时间 " 这个概念往往就要抓狂,正因如此,当我们想要从宏观的历史概念来审视某些单个的历史事件时,大脑往往会简单的把这些事件划分成 " 古代 " 的事情和 " 现代 " 的事情。不过,如果我告诉你,那些你认为发生在当代的事情其实比你想象的年代久远的多,不知你会作何感想?这无疑会让我们简单的历史分类法受到震撼,让我们不得不反思自己的历史观。吾日三省吾身,这也不失为一件好事。我们整理了一组相互对照的历史事件,这些事件发生的时间相差无几,一定会让你大吃一惊,重新审视自己对历史的认知。 [ /cn ]
