".... I have a sneaking idea that you have to use two ways of looking if you want to give a good feel for 3 dimensions. The mind and the eye, can then appreciate the distortions inevitable in each type of projection, and make allowances for it. I enjoy going from one projection to the other and back again, just to appreciate the artifices invoved in flattening 3 dimensional reality onto a 2 dimensional picture. Notice how the linear pictures distort the foreground, and one loses sense of direction. The circular pictures though do those things very well, but curve the horizon, and flatten out the sky. As the sky doesn't usually hold much information it works very well. "
