i don't know HOW i thought this considering i knew the order of the planets since 3, but i thought for a few weeks when i was 10 that you could see titan (one of saturn's moons) glowing (even though titan doesn't even emit light) on a CLOUDY DAY. i blame dumb youtube conspiracy theory videos on this one.

When at around 2-3 years old - I was at Montevideo as a son of the Soviet diplomat - and I trust this experience had been some basis for my quite deep and sophisticated thought about what life for me is... and is THIS LIFE at all FOR ME??? or I am just a "weird accidential appearanace of my soul" during someone's REAL LIFE.
Time passed by - I grew up and even now - I am sure - the Life around is many ways similar to what Matrix movie has explained as "shell" mode.

The joy and pain of this life of course is what was absorbed by our (I belive - multidimential!) brain.
we all are well trained to "mute" our real feelings in the course of day to day route from baby to grave.
The Universe will be still there wnen we die - while we are sure the "real us" will never die - and for me this is something not very religious - the feeling iniside is "my own" and I can inderstand that lots of people would agree to share this sweet experience and for me every thinking as above - is enlightening my soul and I start to distance from everyday "stupid" deeds, going at work, breakfast, transport.

Only going to sleep at night remaing one of the "real" things - and this is a "right connection" towards sweet and "awaken" feelings as whan I was kid.
I wish all of us stay kids in our heart and be open to society as much as we can agree to be. Openness creates OCEAN of GOOD and HAPPY BEING.
I may sound weird and even lost of mind :) - while I am trying as I said to be OPEN]

Best regards,

I thought that there was this one star in the sky that would instantly turn you into an oven if you looked at it. For 2 years I was afraid of looking at the night sky

The scariest time to me, was in 3rd or 4th grade when they tell you we are living on a ball, that is spinning around, for day and night. Revolving around the sun, and at the same time we're careening through space. WOW.

I used to think the sun and the moon were the same thing. When it changed back and forth, that was what caused daytime and nighttime.

I used to think that when I went outside at night with a flashlight and pointed it at the sky, that I was "making" a new star. And that for every time I turned the flashlight off and on while pointing at the sky I was making more and more stars.

I used to believe that the sky was another dimension and if you jumped high enough you would fall up forever. I also that since the moon was in the day as well it would have life and at night everything died.

I had a huge discussion in 2nd grade standing at the globe. The other person said we live on the outside of the globe. Duh- we live on the inside! Besides if we lived on the outside how would we not just fall off into space?!!

My mind was blown when I found out that we live on a giant ROUND planet. Like many people, I used to think the world was flat, because that is how it looks. (It's obviously an illusion caused by how small we are, compared to the planet.)
