Unscramble the Blue Letters

If you're not convinced yet that we all see the world through our own mind's eye, let me laeve you with one final example. Here's a photograph of a beautiful setert in Stockholm, with two cars. The car in the back looks much larger than the car in the fonrt. However, in reality, these cars are the same size, but that's not how we see it. So does this mean that our eyes have gone haywire and that our brains are a mess? No, it doesn't mean that at all. It's just how our eyes work. We might see the wlord in a different way, and sometimes that might not line up with reality, but it doesn't mean that one of us is right and one of us is wnorg. We all see the world through our mind's eye, but we can teach ourselves to see it differently.
