Sometime around 6000 BCE a nomadic herding people settled into villages in the Mountainous region just west of the Indus River.

By the mid-fifth century BCE, when Herodotus was in the prime of life, Athens had become a great imperial city which was the cultural capital of the Greek world.

 600 B.C.E.
Circa 500 B.C.E., the Olmecs brought forth their calendar and mathematics; Heraclitus talked about universal flux and rhythm, Parmenides wrote about the oneness of Being, Empedocles about the unity of opposites, and Democritus about atoms and progress.
Chinese History, for example, 1000 B.C.E. marks the beginning of the Zhou Dynasty, which emphasized very strongly the Emperor’s “mandate of heaven” and “obedience to Gods”.
This would suggest that the philosophies that originated in the Sixth Century B.C.E. time era were not wholly based on “where’d we go wrong?” But that there was the allowance for a new manner of thinking, one which actually disseminated itself into the mainstream societies of the ancient world.

In 487 the omce lost much of its importance owing to the substitution of the lot for election: the chance that the lot would at the particular crisis of 483 BCE fall on Themistocles was obviously remote: and the Athenaion Politeia is generally wrong about Themistocles.
