Do we see as the birds?

I wonder if birds see the air, fish see the sea, as we see the water when we are rowing a boat, seeing or being aware of ripples and waves, of movement and riding or being buffeted by the currents? Do we see the ripples and waves of history, of society, coming toward us, or moving away from our touch? I move with the lawn tractor, barely aware yet still aware of the wind, the rises in the earth beneath us, this tractor and me: we move quickly and purposively, and yet if I had to I could not easily pre-plan my movements on the levers. Still I do not think we are aware very often of our touch on the larger eddies.
