It’s just too good to be true

The Guardian Weekly - - Diversions -

At what point does some­thing real be­come imag­ined?

They’re called van­ish­ing points, for ex­am­ple where par­al­lel lines ap­pear to con­verge in long views of land­scapes, or more philo­soph­i­cally in long-term views of life. Lawrie Bradly, Sur­rey Hills, Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia

• When it seems too good to be true. Avril Tay­lor, Dun­das, On­tario, Canada

• At the blink of an eye. David Turner, Belle­vue Heights, South Aus­tralia

• When it passes over the event hori­zon of a black hole. Paul Broady, Christchurch, New Zea­land

• One pos­si­ble rea­son that chil­dren are of­ten fas­ci­nated by di­nosaurs is that they help them work out what is real and what is to be feared. Di­nosaurs were real but no longer ex­ist and were fierce but are no longer scary. David Isaacs, Syd­ney, Aus­tralia

• For me, usu­ally at about 4am. Donna Samoyloff, Toronto, Canada
