Does 64 equal to 65?
--speech on my oral english class
I want you to watch an interesting flash before my speech. Address: http://blog.sina.com.cn/pic/4706fce9020001ru
64 equals to 65? Accoding to our comman sense, that's impossible! How could it be? Ok, let's see it again.
Nothing goes wrong, isn't it? Yes, you may say--maybe our math teacher haven't told me about it--that 64 equals to 65 sometime.We see it happen, isn't it?
But let's think twice before we made such conclusion. Of course 64 can't equal to 65 in any case. Imagine yourself as a little kid and your kindergarten teacher takes 65 of you and your classmates out for a picnic. You lost your way while the teacher counted 64 of you are in the que. She says, that’s ok, all of you are here because 64 equeals to 65. How would you feel? And the key to this question is, there are a very small space hidden in the second pattern. You see, the line here are not parallel. And the area between them equals to 1 acctually.
Very interesting, isn't it? We're all cheated by our eyes, which we are most trust in. Not Always Belive What We See. Please take time to look at things that you haven't met before and take a seconde thought to wander about how it could be. Though eyes are windows of human being, It’s more important for us to look beyond the window.So one should also open the door and stept out of house, then he could feel the whole real world. Which means, Not only use our eyes but also open our minds, only that can we make us more creative and more accurate.
