: I saw this passage on a textbook. I somehow sense something strange. Could anyone point that out for me if there is anything?

: The illusion of moon following us is basically because of our psychological reaction.

: thank you

Well, I think that to make any sense at all, it should read either, 'the moon' or 'a moon'. However, it does strike me as a statement of the obvious - an 'illusion' is by definition the result of a 'psychological reaction' so I have no idea what the author is trying to say.
