What is going on in this image. It isn't a very steep staircase into a ceiling.
My office was asked for input recently on an ethics question. I circulated the question and got two opposing views, one said the rule is far to liberal and a danger to all who go near, and one it is far to restrictive and a danger to all who go near. And both are valid points of view. I can explain both.
I am sorting out my office, getting ready for a new office sharing arrangement. I am bringing home some personal items I have accumulated over the years, one was a little sign that reads, "I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you." Kind of rude, but I like it.
Many of the things we see in life, that we hear in life, that don't make sense, might with a little explanation. We can explain, understanding is an inside job, like happiness.
So what is happening above. It is a stone and concrete staircase from the underside. What looks like a ceiling at the top, is where the top of stairs join the floor above. You would climb up the other side of what you are seeing. The windows, are a skylight. This was taken in an aboveground metro rail (subway) station, looking straight up. Does it make more sense now?
