Our world lies midway between the stellar world above and the subatomic world below. It would be difficult to conceive of a more favorable position for a race that seeks to comprehend the material universe. This position makes it possible to look both upward and downward, and to use both telescopes and microscopes in obtaining empirical evidence upon which to build theoretical conclusions. A few years ago it might have been claimed that this midway position is more apparent than real; that by mere chance men had gone equal distance into things that were above and below their world; that the real extensions may be far from equal. In recent years there have appeared some reasons for thinking that this location of man is just as real as it is apparent.
