A sense of proportion

about the world is available here — at least if you’re running Java. Before Java there was, of course, no way for man to understand his place in the Universe.

    Celluloid was of course the real dawning of Man’s Place In The Universe, with the original Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames (mentioned in the link above). I remember it well from my schooldays… although perhaps not that well, as I thought there was a scene with a boy on a rowing boat, a mosquito sucking blood out of the back of his hand and the film zooming in on the red corpuscles in the mozzie’s mouthparts.

    Looking at the stills from http://www.powersof10.com, there is no such scene.

    The real question is: while pre-Java man might be able to understand his proper place, what about pre Java Man?

    Splendid party, btw. I envy Rosie — the best adult attendees I ever got as a child were an occasional Westward TV presenter (later drummed out of the service due booze) and a bishop.
