Surviving the World
A Photocomic Education by Dante Shepherd
Lesson #3307 - Volume
Words are often so loud that it gets hard to discern what the actions were - but the progress of actions is pretty observable, no matter how loud they are. People can observe both the value and the rate. Math is inherent.
