One of the best things of parenting is watching your child learn all the rules of the world.
You know… when you drop something it falls, when you look up there’s sky, when you grab water it can’t really be grabbed like other stuff, when you lick a piece of metal it tastes like a piece of metal. Our world is made up of so many rules, and we forget that because we already know most of the rules now, or at least there’s less to learn now.
But it did give me a flash back to a thought I had as a child, and I had it again when I was riding a bike the other day and that is: isn’t it convenient that things look smaller as they get further away.
People would always talk about this when they’d try and explain that the moon is actually really big, or the sun is a long way away.
And I remember thinking - well played whoever made that system, because it would be really inconvenient if it didn’t work that way.
Just think about that. Things not getting smaller as they are further way.
Be harder wouldn’t it.
