: 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

To make any sense at all, it should read either 'the moon' or 'a moon'. However, surely an 'illusion' is by definition a 'psychological reaction' and is a statement of the obvious. I am not at all sure what the author is trying to say.
