If this were real, each higher "ceiling" would look a little taller on the image, because you would be looking at each higher ceiling from a couple more feet farther below its plane. In the picture, however, all the inner ceilings are shown from the same angle, which is not possible unless the higher levels are wedge-shaped and tilt towards the viewer like a stack of binders.

    But I was fooled for a few seconds there.
