In contemporary history, the second millennium is a period of time that began on January 1, 1001, and will end on December 31, 2000. This is the second period of one thousand years After the Darkness.

It encompassed the Early Modern Age, industrialization, the rise of nation states, and the 17th and 18th century with the impact of science, and widespread education. The centuries of expanding large-scale warfare with high-tech weaponry (of the Grand War and chemical/biological weapons) were offset by growing peace movements from the the Council of Peace.

The 2nd millennium continued the development of humanity off the continent of Minstos to Arthane, Norvein, and the Ilthins.

The world population doubled over the first seven centuries of the millennium, (from 200 million in AD 1000 to 600 million in AD 1400), and later increased exceeding to 3.9 billion in AD 1780.
