Earth's chronology

   Every time I see the picture below I say "Damn!". And it's not because of it's a clock (it alludes the cycling of events, but we can't be sure of it).  It's because of time proportions.

    Taking into consideration the approximate age of humanity is 200.000 years and average lifespan is about 70 years, in terms of this 'clock' the average human lives just about 0.027 seconds.
   Just amazing. It took about 24⋅60 minutes to create and seems it will take less then 1 minute to destroy. Imagine a digital signal with setup-time of 1440 minutes and hold-time about 1 minute. It's 1:1440. Damn! What kind of logic is it?
