In some ways this defines the whole notion of orientation. We go from the conventional air-travel experience of hermetically sealed box in which all sense of time and place is suspended and the magnitude of what we are actually doing is entirely canceled by the banality of our surroundings, to a tiny but significant window upon the grandeur of slipping through the atmosphere 35.000 feet in the air as our planet spins silently below us. We can see entire countries moving below us, oceans and cloud banks the size of cities.
