“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Uncanny Sydney: Objects in Mirror

I'm in Paddington (uncanny already for a Londoner) but I could swear this place looks like Wimbledon Village, with strange birds and trees...somehow superimposed with Venice, all those intricate balconies...I've got that objects in mirror are closer than they appear vibe again.

I notice that when we are in a moving car, it gets quite difficult to differentiate the real distance between us and the objects behind. I prefer to get a mirror that does not do this to prevent myself from making a wrong judgment. This is really important especially when you are on the road which requires you to have a quick reaction time.
