Posted on

Minutia are fascinating. People are enthralled with tiny things. Small dogs are somehow cuter, babies are more appealing than teenagers, dolls and statuettes are highly valued, model cars prized for their construction (or lack thereof).

But that’s all material stuff. What happens in tiny bits of minutes? Slow motion is way more fun to watch than fast-forward.

…you fall into a black hole?

…you throw a baseball at 0.9c?
