Something Thoreau wrote on July 10, 1851

“I am always struck by the centrality of the observer’s position. He always stands fronting the middle of the arch, and does not suspect at first that a thousand observers on a thousand hills behold the sunset sky from equally favorable positions.”

Perspective is of course relative. The reality of what one sees might even be – Einstein theorized just looking changed things – making keeping it real all the more arbitrary.
