There’s a divide in numbers that we don’t often think about. For instance, the distance between one million and one billion.
One million seconds is 11 days. That’s not too bad. Three-fourths of a month, and you’ve covered one million seconds.
How much do you think a billion seconds is?
Go on, take a guess.
It’s 31 years. When we only have a vague understanding – the words, but not the concept – than we miss the context of what is being talked about.
