I heard one of my friends talking about a math or a geometry invented by some famous Russian guy... It goes something like...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2 parallel lines come from the same point... And thats the base of everything else... Some crazy stuff!!! I been thinking about this... You can be standing on a road, and you have that vantage point effect where the horizon kind of fades off to the distance... But its still 2 parallel lines, the street/road... Yet to your view it looks like its coming from a point...

So is this geometry a mere shift of POV or something vastly different?
