, In human History people considered periods of change in Culture, History and Technology to be different and so gave them different names to distinguish them, examples include - The Classical Period, The Renassance and the Space age. From the 21st Century up these would become known only as Eras and other words like Age and period would no longer be used. Humanity considered, largely, the 21st Century as one of the worst in history and the 22nd as The Great Emancipation (event). Although the 21st Century was a time of great discovery this was often overlooked by the disasters, ecological, natural, manmade ect. People of the later Eras considered the people of the 21st Century Violent, Self Obsessed and materialistic which led to the great Spiritual Movement of 2126 and the Never Again Foundation.
