A World of Illusions: The Moon


The Moon looks big, right? And when it goes up it looks smaller, like it’s farther away? So, it’s all illusion. All in our heads. In fact, it’s always the same size, but in the photo it looks closer and bigger. Looks like it but isn’t. Several theories try to explain why we have this illusion. The one I like the most is this: everything on the horizon is reachable, just walk or swim/swim and then it feels closer than the top of your head, up there, because not so long ago it didn’t we could fly. Therefore, it was not achievable.
