Currently, the “milli-scale” – the size at which we can technically see, but usually do not perceive, has a disproportionate number of biomarkers that focus on the spatial dimension rather than the temporal (time) one. We’ve all heard in science or sci-fi books and movies of the concepts of space and time. They are fundamental dimensions that govern the world around us, including how we see, perceive, and measure. Technically, if one tries hard enough, one can estimate spatial features (millimeters) at the milli-scale with their eyes.
However, temporal changes (milliseconds) that occur at the milli-scale are nearly impossible to gauge with mere human senses.
