John--what is most fascinating to me is how well we have all adapted to the presentation of visual perspective. It was not all that many hundreds of years ago that we could not even conceive it, much less represent it.

I remember how much I loved the visuals on TV when Capt Kirk demanded Warp speed from his crew back in...well, back last century at some point. Lots of entire galaxies flying by faster than one could even grasp.
