How did I get here?

Charting your incredible journey from Big Bang to birth (in about the time it takes to eat a Vegemite sandwich), How Did I Get Here? is my interpretation of our collective creation story.

You see, you are one of the newest additions to a family tree that goes all the way back to the very first life on Earth. We are all very, very, very (times a gazillion) lucky to be here. How Did I Get Here? is a bit of a reminder, a note-to-self in the simplest terms of some of the things that had to happen in order for you to be reading this.

Our universe is more unimaginably marvellous than we can ever suppose. We know so little. There’s still so much more to discover about how we got here, and where we’re going.
