After playing halo, i began to think that the world was actually a huge megastructure, which explained iron deposits deep in the earth's crust. When i learned that things like iron and coal were made from compression of dead organisms, that thought collapsed on itself.

I used to believe that when I lay on the grass on my back on a summers'day and watched the white clouds roll across the sky-that I was actually experiencing the earth spinning.
I really thought I could feel the earth moving beneath me. It was wonderful and greatly humbling at the same time.

When I was little and I would ride in the car, I used to believe that the clouds would get caught in the branches, and that was why they looked different when you passed a big grove of trees.

I used to believe that bugs had their homes inside of rocks behind the shiny "windows" of biotite mica. Our garden had numerous granite rocks and the mica appeared as utterly flat and shiny black pieces about as big as a fingernail.

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 think that when going up a hill, and you couldn't see sny more of the road because it was on the other side, that we were driving near the end of the world, and were going to fall off, but when we didn't, i came to the conclusion that we just fell into another dimention.

When I was a kid, having seen on television that lava from volcanoes would harden into rocks, I decided that all rocks must have been created by a volcano spewing out lava. I figured that different types of rocks resulted from the lava drying differently. I asked my mom about this and she said "well, that's not far off." I later learned about igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rock in school -- so I wasn't *completely* wrong!

My parents once told me that the large boulders and rocks in the area known as "The Boulders" north of Phoenix were man made. I believed it until I was 13, and while driving through the area announced my fact to my friend and her parents. Much to my dismay, they laughed, and told me the truth of the matter. Really now, tons and tons of rock and giant boulder, man made!
