Thanks to my Dad for emailing this to me…
This is a computer simulation of the world’s air traffic, over a 24-hour period. You can see the path of the Sun and shadows too. As you can see, the traffic increases as the Sun comes up, and slows, as the shadows grow.
Take a look:
As my Dad said, there is is something “hypnotic” about this. He’s right. I’ve probably watched it six or eight times already.
We are battling ants here in the house right now. We think they’ve been attracted inside because of how cold it is outside. (They’re small little scavenger ants, not Fire Ants…)
It’s amazing to watch how they travel in these Chisholm Trail-like patterns. And it’s amazing to me how similar their patterns are to these patterns of these massive jets are.
There is something almost “organic” about it..how humbling it is…and how beautiful.
