I believe that the "bees" are paired with words like "for" in the chart to draw similarities to the word "before"? 21:49, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

They weren’t though. “That Guy from the Netherlands” (talk) 13:08, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

Agreed. Has been changed. 21:59, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

While the chart begins with Big Bang on the left side, I bee-lieve it's a history of our solar system, not the universe. When Rocky Planets formed is not a single specific point in time across the entire universe, and we have no idea if bees or thyme even exist beyond our planet.

Not quite. The Earth formed with the rest of the solar system. And since "Rocky planets form" is shown earlier, it's presumably refers to rocky planets in the universe -- in other, older star systems, rather than our own. --Aaron of Mpls (talk)

As of this comment, this page is the first page to pop up when typing in the phrase "The Time for Beeland". 23:51, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

What's missing is Time after Thyme Capncanuck (talk) 00:45, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

And big missed opportunity for "Four bees land on thyme" 05:16, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

The Big Bang of course has two bees in it.

…But those bees did not develop until long after homo sapien did, the written word, the latin alphabet, et al. Indeed, “The Big Bang”, is a rather more recent construct, although the event is pre-Plank time. Logics (talk) 17:22, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

I accidentally deleted the "incomplete explanation" tag after completing the transcript. Sorry about that, I'm new to wiki editing :( Duraludon (talk) 16:05, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

Fixed, no worries. :) Hawthorn (talk) 16:56, 21 November 2019 (UTC)
