And that includes parallel shelves! :smoke:

See, I don't know just how principled this uncertainty is. You might be pulling the wool over our eyes!

There are Ideal Parallel Shelves, of course, but the shelves that we perceive are not Ideal shelves.

I put this statement through Arnold's Uncertainty Principle.

It broke my mind.

I think you are deceiving yourself. There cannot be any such thing as ideal, never mind parallel, shelves, perceived or otherwise.

When I sent my sister (who lives in Australia) a photo of my latest 'installation' (which is what all great artistes now term their efforts), she said 'Very nice. But they are all upside down'. Because of this perception, she was utterly unable to appreciate the parallelicisity of form which pervaded the work.

Perhaps if you sent her an upside down photo of the shelves? Just a thought.

I just realised, to put up parallel shelves you have to use a spirit level. A fucking SPIRIT level! Parallelism is the domain of ghosts and woo. Run. Run for your lives.

No, that would be the fall, I think that you will find that shelves become non parallel before the fall.
