'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' Perspective
From a 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' perspective, imagine the tennis court I have in my back yard (I don't actually have a tennis court in my back yard, but hey, we are just imagining here). This tennis court is covered in multicolored beach balls about 24" (60 cm) in diameter. Now imagine you have been shrunk by Rick Moranis to about the size of an ant (the insect, not the annoying relative that used to pinch your cheeks and want 'kisses'). In your miniature form, you can see the absolutely huge amount of area that the beach balls don't touch. In fact there is actually more surface area of the tennis court that is not contacting a beach ball than is touching a beach ball.
Now imagine that those beach balls are reduced to the size of 1/4" (0.5cm) diameter ball bearings (not that it is particularly relevant but imagine that these mini beach balls are iridescent blue). In your miniature ant format, you will see that there is hardly any space for you to maneuver and an exponentially greater amount of surface area is now in contact with the beach balls. Also, once you have been 'unshrunk', you will note that the total volume of the large beach balls is far greater than the tiny beach balls.
