The Zope management interface is broken into three frames. With
the left frame you navigate around Zope much like you would
navigate around a file system with a file manager like Windows
Explorer. This frame is called the *Navigator*, and is shown in
the left frame of [2-1]. In this frame you see the root folder
and all of its subfolders. The root folder is in the upper left
corner of the tree. The root folder is the "top" of
Zope. Everything in Zope lives inside the root folder.

You don't navigate around "Zope", you navigate through Zopes Object DataBase (glossary: --> ZODB) made out of
"Objects". "Folderish" Objects may contain other Objects, while simple Objects do not contain other Objects.
