How would the room look like for a person that never has seen a house or a box/square...? Interesting thought I think...

This is amazing and the same reason why a human brain can't illustrate the infinite.
If you try to imagine an endless space, you'll will always think about an end at some point (a wall, or something else), because we usually think in variable limits.

its like my eyes i suffer from bad Astigmatism ..when i look at my computer screen the top seems to be 5-10cm wider than the bottom and not 90 degrees
{causes difficulties in seeing fine detail, and in some cases vertical lines (e.g., walls) may appear to the patient to be tilted) so i live in this world everyday until i put on my glasses!
