A Thought

         If the World were a few feet in diameter, floating a few feet
         above a field somewhere, people would come from everywhere to
         marvel at it.

         People would walk around it, marvelling at it's big pools of
         water, it's little pools of water and the way the water flowed
         between the pools.

         People would marvel at the bumps on it and the holes in it, and
         they would marvel at the very thin layer of gas surrounding it
         and the water suspended in the gas.

         The people would marvel at all the creatures walking around on
         the surface of the ball and at the creatures in the water.

         The people would declare it sacred because it was the only one,
         and they would protect it so that it would not be hurt.  The ball
         would be the greatest wonder known, and the people would come to
         pray to it, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know the beauty
         and to wonder how it could be.

         People would love it and defend it with their lives, their own
         roundness, could be nothing without it.

         If the earth were a few feet in diameter.
