    yes, very nice.

    i was going to write
    "...if the coast-lines had altered
    to illustrate the oscillating sea-level.
    many of those routes (and cities)
    are under four-hundred feet of salt-water, now."

    as i was watching the animation
    for the fourth or fifth time,
    i noticed that he had "colored outside of the lines"
    in some frames. in fact,
    illustrating the altering continental shores.

    but, not the interior water-bodies.
    the mediterranean sea is not shown as reduced
    or as a rivered valley - neither is the black or caspian sea.

    north america, central asia and the sahara
    are not shown with great lakes.
    the glacial-melt lakes (and their dessication)
    were important factors in human migrations
    and the consequent impingments.

    the "additional content" button,
    between the "play" and "reverse" buttons,
    offered a lot of information.
    i did not see, in there,
    an explication of the beneficent environment
    of the equatorial continental-shelf during the ice age
    and the lack of advancement by the resident genomes.

    quite a contrast to those that were winnowed
    by the interior of the eur-asian land-mass.
