Let’s Look at the Scale of Things!
All water on the planet (sphere over western U.S., 1384 Km in diameter)
Fresh liquid water in the ground, lakes, swamps, and rivers
(sphere over Kentucky, 273 Km in diameter), and
Fresh-water lakes and rivers (the Tiny sphere over Georgia, 56 Km in
diameter).

Changing of major Ions of brine to 3 new stages in wet, semi arid
and arid conditions from 2007 to 2011
During the time, sodium concentrations have decreased compared to Mg
concentration, which indicates huge amounts of Halite have been deposited on
Lake’s periphery and bed. That is, sodium has passed from solution phase to solid
phase

Where and When Did We Lose Our
Sight on the
Scope and Scale of Things?
Tabriz 700 Years Ago
The Largest City Within the LU Basin
Farmers pay a tax for using the water from artificial reservoirs and
Qanats, usually 1/3 of their yield.
I think, this city is the best trade center in the world. Merchants
would pay a transit fee as well as a tax on the merchandize they
trade.
24 trade offices by people of Genoa alone are operating in Tabriz.
The tax collected by the governor of Tabriz from the European
merchants who were crossing the safe transport roads
constructed and operated by the Empire, is more than the
entire tax the king of France collects from all of France.

I think, this city is the best trade center in the world. Merchants would pay a transit fee as well as a tax on the merchandize they trade. 24 trade offices by people of Genoa alone are operating in Tabriz. The tax collected by the governor of Tabriz from the European merchants who were crossing the safe transport roads constructed and operated by the Empire, is more than the entire tax the king of France collects from all of France.
