Impostor, according to the Merriam Webster dictionary of the English language, is one that assumes false identity or title for the purpose of deception.
Impostors are artificial objects that pose as real things: substitutes.
Every inch of space inhabited by people is dotted with pitiful attempts at embellishing (?) the immediate surroundings:
– a window painted on the building facade;
– a gypsum roe deer hiding under the ferns in neighbour’s garden;
– plastic grass lining the floor of summer gardens;
– blue paint pretending to be the sky.
It is fascinating why people tolerate such creations and even more puzzling why they come up with them in the first place.
