How old is Civilization?

We now know that the Earth and the Universe are very old. Not just six thousand years as believed previously. Could the same be true of
Civilization? Perhaps it was not born just 6000 years ago somewhere in the Middle East. Civilization may be almost as old as the Universe itself because it is a unique organization of "cells' (human beings) that brings into being a powerful organism capable of transplanting itself across the Universe. In this video, Carl Sagan asks some questions.
