This chart is really cool. I donโ€™t know what it is about it that really fascinate me. Just seeing the symbols evolve over time and over civilizations into what we have today gives a good sense of change and evolution through time.

The end, or split of certain characters is the most interesting piece to me. Seeing some die off in 750 BCE and then multiple current day letters tying back to one symbol from the past.
