The origin of the word “horizon” is from the Greek horizōn kylos or “dividing circle” and is the immaterial instant of separation between earth and sky. The terms “horizon line” and “eye level” are often used synonymously. Horizon line/eye level refer to a physical/visual boundary where sky separates from land or water. It is the actual height of the viewer’s eyes when looking at an object, interior scene, or an exterior scene.  When we can't see the horizon line space contracts claustrophobically, we loose our point of reference, our contact with our true nature.
