How Long Ago Is a Trillion Seconds?

I read this astonishing figure :

How Long Ago Is a Trillion Seconds?

If you count backward, then:

1 million seconds = 12 days ago
1 billion seconds = 31 years ago
1 trillion seconds = 30,000 B.C.

I discovered that a trillion dollars is a big deal - In 2014, the Gross World Product (same as global GDP) was around US$78.28 trillion in nominal terms and totalled approximately 107.5 trillion international dollars in terms of purchasing power parity (PPP).

In 2018, India's GDP was estimated to be 3 trillion dollars and 10 trillion in terms of PPP (so India would be 9 % of the world's economy in PPP terms and 4 % in nominal dollar terms).
