Chronocentrism is the belief that, of all the billions of years of history, the times you live in are the culmination of the workings of the Universe.
(i) On March 26 1997 39 members of the Heaven's Gate religious group committed mass suicide in order to live on a spaceship which was following comet Hale-Bopp, and escape the Earth before it was recycled.

(ii) "The End of History" by Francis Fukuyama
