You missed the point. Of course, the difficulty of the task of a specific function will directly contribute to the number of lines of code for that function, but that's not what I was talking about. What I was talking about was that what we can grasp in one view, we can understand better. If the code lies outside of our view, then we understand it less. I can support this claim with numerous articles/books/studies of human visual limits vs short-term memory. I am only bringing this forward for us to consider in our writing code. If we know why we do things, then we can better understand what we do.
