Explained away as Grandiose Delusion, a classic symptom of Bipolar Psychosis by a gaggle of glee-full psychologists all with two feet firmly in the present, I bring you now the full, unflinching, truth of a secret that I have lived with my whole life. That I have lived a very long time.
Starting with the very first humans at the dawn of civilisation and moving with the ebb and flow of time and transformation, I have lived through all the ups and downs, the highs and the lows and seen the filth and the fury of a whole history of characters. I have lived through every age and have seen human behaviour of every kind and in every situation.
My time over these thousands of years is now distilled in my head as a assortment of grainy memories. This new series will be a garage declutter of my head where we look at how humanity has developed and what we can learn for the future. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to experience time and history in its entirety and now I’m passing on a first hand history of time to you, fine reader. Enjoy.
