I used to believe that there were monsters or spirits in the darkness, so for that reason I did not like it, in fact, I was afraid about being alone and walking through a passage when it was dark, hence I had to ask for company in order to feel safer

I used to believe that skyscrapers were actual people that went on top of tall buildings and scraped the sky because the people couldn't see out of the sky windows. No one ever told me that they weren't people but those really tall buildings and I had to find it out myself.

I used to think an earthquake was an "earth cake" and I would picture a big cake made of dirt. So when my parents were watching the news about the earthquake that happened in our town on TV, I would think the ground would shake a lot and make a cake shaped thing. I never knew how it was possible

I grew up in the city, where at night there are a lot of city lights, but very few stars in the sky. After a camping trip, where there were no city lights but so, so many stars in the sky, I believed that city lights were stars that fell to the ground.

When I was about 5, we used to go to my grandmother's house. She lived in a village, where was a place, where the was an echo. We always shouted, and heard the resound. Once I asked: How it works? What is this phenomenon exactly? She said: On the otherside there's a child, who shouts back the same words. (It was easier to say this for a little child.) I always tried to see him, who "lived" next to the forest on the otherside, but actually I couldn't make it out whether there was standing or not.xD

when I was little I used to think that if I dug down deep enough on the sand at the beach I could dig my way to china. I was crushed when I discovered I would have to travel through molten rock to get there

When I looked up in the sky and could see the clouds moving I used to think that it was the earth spinning.

I was deathly afraid of moss. I think it reminded me of bugs which I was also deathly afraid of. Outdoor time was fun in my family.

As a child, I used to believe that the ocean was created by ancient people spitting on the ground, and I used to thought that the wind was created by people breathing all the time! I also thought that animals were made by people and they just put weird sounds into the animal and that's why they make weird sounds!

Until I turned 13, I thought the signs up in the mountains: "Watch for falling rock" was warning people about a murderous Indian named Falling Rock. Scared me senseless.

For some reason, I used to believe the sky was the beach (the clouds were the sand and the blue part was the ocean- I'm not sure what I thought about cloudy days)

When I was about five or six years old, I believed the sea was a man made phenomenon. I imagined that men actually dug the sea many years ago like that was their career.

There's a restaurant in the town I live in called Cafe Aroma. For a while now, there's been a drawing on the special-of-the-day chalk board. When I was about seven or eight, my mom caught me staring for a really long time at the chalk board and asked why I found it so interesting. I responded with, "I was looking at the chalkboard. Those are such pretty mountains!" That's when she told me that they weren't mountains. I looked back and, a couple minutes later I realized she was right. The drawing is of a naked lady laying down. She told me that it had been modeled after the mountains nearby that looked like a lady lying down. Since then, until I was about twelve, I thought that mountains were really just giant women who had laid down to sleep, but died because people started tearing them apart to make towns on them and I frequently looked for their faces. I was later told the differences and similarities between mountains and women.
