Images, Video, and Other Other Media

Movie S1
European birth-death network dynamics, offering a meta-narrative of cultural history based on the FB dataset, 0 to 2012 CE (67 seconds). The dynamically applied color scheme indicates birth sources (blue) and death attractors (red) in correspondence to Fig. 1C. Individuals in the videos appear as particles gravitating towards their death locations, indicating collective directions of flow. The video is rendered with one frame per year at 30 frames per second. Further characterization of the movie content is given in the text and Fig. 3A.
Movie S2
North American birth-death network dynamics, offering a metanarrative of cultural history based on the FB dataset, 1620 to 2012 CE (13 seconds). As in Movie S1, the dynamically applied color scheme indicates birth sources (blue) and death attractors (red) in correspondence to Fig. 1C. Individuals in the videos appear as particles gravitating towards their death locations, indicating collective directions of flow. The video is rendered with one frame per year at 30 frames per second.
