Speaking of redwood trees, I thought I would post a very good video that shows just how difficult it is to grasp a connected vision of one of these things.
When I sit back to think exactly how tall a redwood tree is, I don’t find anything distinctly challenging. Then, after I really consider the height of a redwood and begin comparing that height to things around me, I realize that visualizing that height isn’t something that I can do all too easily. Especially when it can’t be done at a distance.
Here, this video might explain what I am talking about a bit better than I can.
