The Total Perspective Vortex: You are here!

The TPV - according to The Hitchhicker's Guide to the galaxy- "shows its victim the entire unimaginable infinity of the universe with a very tiny marker that says "You Are Here" which points to a microscopic dot on a microscopic dot.

This is a great java animation that zooms from the cosmic to the quantum scale- like a future "Google Cosmos"? It's the modern version of Charles & Ray Eames 1968 book "Powers of Ten"

Who would have thought a couple of furniture designers would be so "deep"?
