Indeed, and this is the/a problem with the tree
structure/representation of the material.
Instead of by and by getting a sense where you
are, you are forever hanging from some branch,
somewhere, without getting a sense how it all
fits together.

Now, in all fairness, if you navigate the tree
long enough, you should get the spacial
awareness there just as well as in a file.
Because awareness of space should be a function
of time and movement, right? It is just
a matter or MORE time compared with
a simpler structure.
