    • I noticed the same thing when I was processing them. I think it looks like it was taken from a plane, which is why our minds “accept” it.

Still odd our minds accept it so readily though. I’m a reasonably frequent-flier, but I’m still surprised my subconscious mind has adapted and so easily “accepts” an otherwise “upside down”view.
