About から見ると

から()ると is a common sentence pattern seen when something is being viewed either from the perspective of (A), or a judgment is being made based on looking at the situation of (A) objectively. This may be translated either as 'from the point of view of (A), (B)', or 'from looking at (A), one could say (B)'.
This grammar construction is comprised of the conjunction particle から 'from', the る-Verb ()る 'to look', and any of the usual hypothetical statement markers such as と, たら, ば, or even the て-form. It will appear following nouns.
