Geographically, Roshar in the Cognitive Realm appears like an inversion of the continent in the Physical Realm, with its inland seas corresponding exactly to the shape of the land of Roshar. The "seas" are made of tiny dark glass beads that represent objects that exist in the Physical Realm. These beads are bean-sized, or slightly larger than a fingernail.[1] There are spren that look like "little green and orange people, only a few inches tall" climbing around the spheres.[2] When asked if this is the general rule, Sanderson said "there are places in Shadesmar that are different, and some are the same."[3]
