Язык 3D (предлоги)

The young policeman was angry. He was on the road now. He had to get off the bike and push it up a hill. It was the last hill between the station and the old lady's house. When he got to the top of it he could see the house down below, at the bottom of the hill. Just as he looked down at it, he saw a light go on in one of the rooms upstairs.

Вопрос:

1.Зачем нужно два семантически близких предлога down below?
2. Как изменится смысл высказывания, если оставить только down? Только below?
3. Как следует понимать метафору английский язык - это язык 3D?
