From: The World In Your Head by Steven Lehar

Fig. 7.3 (A) If the model world incorporated a nonlinear compressive scale in one dimension, like a diorama, this too would not be immediately apparent to the little man who lives in the model world, except for the fact that beyond a certain distance the spatial resolution in the depth dimension would fall to zero, due to limited resolution in the model space, as observed in our own perceptual world. (B) Viewed from inside this depth-compressed model, the external world would appear to exhibit a complementary expansion in that same dimension, expanding in scale with an exponential function whose slope goes to infinity at the distance of the back plane of the model, due to limited resolution in the model space.
