Each of us has known moments of striking disclosure, when the walls that limit our perceptions are pushed back to reveal the undreamed of. A sudden change of scale often brings about this enlargement of vision, like the first glimpse of a galaxy through the telescope or a drop of water brought into microscopic focus. The infinitesimal order of nature commands the same awe as its cosmic grandeur. When, however, the perceived miracle is a human achievement, the awe is tempered with pride. We learn something new about ourselves and our capabilities when, for example, we experience for the first time the revelation of lace.
