I’ve been thinking more about my dream and the relative speeds of close versus distant objects. The closer an object the faster it appears to be moving. Despite my dream fear, this idea of proximity and velocity are somehow visually appealing. In my dream the speeds are so fantastic I equate them to orbital velocity – 28,000km/h, the speed required to orbit the earth.
