The things that we are taught about as children have a lasting impact on us, they shape our entire worldview and become difficult to shake off even as an adult.

There is something wrong with the photo which is not immediately apparent, because it has been taught that way for years. It’s only reading on the subject later that one can disabuse their minds of the error implanted in them as kids.
