Dreaming of a White Christmas on Different Levels of Reality

– Tom Uytterhoeven –

It's that time of the year again when people start dreaming of (or dreading?) snow. Is it Christmas romanticism? Or just the memory of playing in the snow as a child? Maybe that's why the Calvin-makes-a-snowman cartoons are so popular…



This video shows us different aspects of snow. That is not only fun and interesting as such. It also gives us an example of how multi-layered reality is, how valuable and complementary different perspectives on reality are. Moreover, it shows how a scientific perspective sometimes, however important in general, may not be the most relevant one.
