    OK. With animations?

      Yes - one of the goals is to have fluid transitions, so that things don't seem to teleport onto the screen the way things don't teleport in the real world.

        Honestly though - buttons, photos, video, text, and pieces of paper (!) don't fly around, resize mid flight, and place themselves in front of you.

          Sure, but that's not really the point. You also don't "scroll" through a piece of paper or pinch a physical printout of a photo to get a closer look. Material design is about communicating to users what the interface affords and how you're navigating through it with movement.
