So apparently I need lots of posts (20) to make a thread, but I can include my odd question here after I introduce myself.
I've been lurking around the site, reading things I didn't want to know and now I'm on almost every day. I'm a college student, and I have a very
intelligent part of my mind I keep hidden from most. I use it to write movie scripts and get A's on papers I write the same day their due (some may
know what I mean). Anyways, I love the site and it's subjects, but on to my question.
I have been drinking a bit, so it may not be a valid question to some, but, I'm under the impression that our eyes take in an upside-down image, and
then flip it over so in our brains, we see the right side up picture. Sine everything we see is really upside-down, what does that mean for our
perception of our world? Would our planet be a sphere? Or would we be a ring world, with the sky in the middle?
It may seem a stupid question to some, but it just seems weird to me that if everything we perceive is upside-down, how would it change our knowledge
of how things work if we applied our true viewpoint.
Sorry if I didn't make sense to some, I like to think wayyyyy outside the box.
