space, time & bristlecone pines

tree (4050-year-old bristlecone pine): spatial location over three day period

me (49-year-old human): spatial location over three day period

elevation change: me (tree stayed pretty much the same)

time vectors: tree (green dot) & me (yellow dot)

result of being in the same place at the same time
