History is ending.

It dawned on me recently, today actually, that history is gone, it does not really exist. I don't mean this metaphorically either.

Now right now, this very moment we still have a vague concept of 'history', the holocaust happened, ww2 happened, the greeks whatever. We all have this common conception of 'history', and thats what I am referring to with the word 'history'. I am not referring to actual literal history, rather I am referring to the academic concept of history. I am referring to how we all have some subconcious imprint put in us through history textbooks about 'where we came from' and 'what happened 100 years ago', and we all generally have the same idea on this. This consensus of the past in our culture, brought on by cultural brainwashing in the education system from a young age, is what I am referring to with the word history. It dawned on me this is gradually disappearing.

Because think about. Think about the last 10 years. What would even be taught as history?! So much stuff is happening, and so much stuff is happening quicker and quicker, there is no clearly identified path to follow in the development of anything. There is no simple timeline of events like "ww1 happened, ww2 happened, this led to the holocaust, this led to whatever". I mean in the past 10 years you could say "9-11 attacks happened and this led the middle eastern war", but that information hardly gives the slightest shred of insight into what really was occuring in the world to shape it during that time, then further than that, there is so much controversy surrounding the 9-11 attacks and the iraq war that it will not be possible for it to be taught one single way. Which is another whole component.

For 'History' to exist in the way it always has existed, someone, typically the governing body in power, has to own history. The governing body maintains the records, prints the books, and imprints into children the history they want kids to believe, which lets not kid ourselves, that is primary function of history class taught in elementary and high school. But there is no longer any central governing body that has absolute control over records of data like once was. All of our records are public, all of our records are a free for all now. Now one owns history anymore, history has been released from the grips of those few in power. Which is why I say history no longer exists. What 'History' has been for all of existence prior it no longer is now. There is no longer one singular mass cultural brainwashing imprint known as 'history'. History is ending.

It is coming to pass that the only real representation of OUR past that we have is the genetics in our body. Everything else is just heresay and stories.

The government prints the only history books that exist? And they're secretly in charge of the endless museums, interpretation centres, etc. scattered all around the world that offer their own glimpse of past history?

And my grandfather, telling me his personal account of growing up in the 30s/40s was just a government mouthpiece? damn

Don't take getting high literally.

Also, were you trying to say something about historical revisionism?
