As we learn about our world sometimes it is hard for us to put things into perspective.  We hear about microscopic cells, subcellular structures, single celled organisms, and the like and have a hard time getting a feel for what these things are, how big they are, or how they can do the things they do.  And in turn we tend to regard them with an almost ethereal illusiveness.
