I can't rrelate it to wood, where some trees develop 'tension wood' and others 'compression wood' if growing on a hillside. Softwioods - coniferous (i.e. Pine) grow compression wood on one side to support the tree and hardwoods the other side produce tension wood. - can not relate it at all.
Thought I 'wood' share that with you all.

A Negative Number

-100 -5 = -105
A larger negative number.

The more you take away from it the larger it gets. What is it?

It's a hole. Let's use the beach for example. You're digging a hole to bury your brother. The more sand you take away from the hole, the bigger the hole gets, eventually making it brother-sized. lol :P
