• Timing of falling motion creates scale.
• Slowing the timing by a factor of 2 increases the scale by a factor of 4; slowing by 3 increases scale by 9; etc.
• Filming scale models with high-speed cameras uses this effect to make the models appear much larger.
• Giant characters have a slow walking cadence but fast walking speed due to the long legs.
• The same timing-scale relation applies to swinging and tipping motion.
