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.

That's why I code in 5px font. On my huge monitor I sometimes find the code is shaped like a tiger, or a dragon, I swear I even saw Piccolo. It really does help to see the big picture :B
