Now, with our updated perceptions, if verticals are made completely parrallel, as once they would have been, they appear to be diverging, instead!

I'm noticing this also... when I do perspective correction these days, I'm leaving just a bit of convergence.

But as for the whole perspective-eyesight discussion, it is obvious that God wants us to have reasonably parallel verticals, as He gave us the intelligence to create view cameras... Sinar in excelsis! Will have to ask the new Pope about this, after Easter.

Will you need to bother the new guy? I mean, will the EX-pope have stopped being infallible, at the point of retirement?
