Deep Time Walk is a 4.6km walking audio book telling a history of the living Earth. This unfolding takes you from 4,600,000,000 years ago (4,600 Million Years Ago) to the present day, with each metre walked representing 1 million years.
- The pedometer is used to track how far and fast you walk, adjusting the audio correspondingly
- A time-contextual glossary is available to learn about key concepts
- Mobility Assist Mode is available for those unable to walk
During the dramatised walk you learn from the latest scientific evidence about how our planet evolved over this vast stretch of geological time, including the accretion of the Earth from a disc of rocky debris, the formation of the oceans and atmosphere, the appearance of first life - bacteria, then the first nucleated cells and multicellular organisms.
The experience combines science with humanities to help you understand our common evolutionary history with all life, how very ancient our planet is and the geological impact of humanity. We hope it gives a sense of awe and wonder for our beautiful home and inspires care and reverence.
About the walk
This walking audio book can be done anywhere in the world, and uses the accelerometer to track how far and fast you walk adjusting the audio correspondingly; it will last about 90 minutes. You are able to break this walk up into multiple trips if you wish.
For the best listening experience, we suggest you use headphones. We suggest you walk at a meditative pace, in a natural setting to increase the depth of your experience. If you are not able to walk, a Mobility Assist Mode is available to play the narration without walking.
