Vsauce’s Video About Human History Will Scramble Your Brains

I bet you thought only science was capable of that, but history is no slouch.

Vsauce takes a unique look at history with the idea that the way we learn it in the educational system creates a bunch of separate little units in our perspective of the world. Don’t worry — they’ll jam all of those together for you in Our Narrow Slice.

They also examine just how all of the knowledge that our modern society sees as common sense has really only been common for a tiny fraction of our equally tiny human history.

If you want to have your perception of reality completely derailed in the most entertaining possible way, this is the video for you.
