Interesting observation. I suppose this is evidence that some fundamental, theoretical principles are abstractions, requiring a learning process, and are not very intuitive. It may be more "natural" to interpret built form for as an analogy for natural forms, where planes are horizontal (the earth), contrasted with verticals (trees).
Of course trees have branches (cantilevers) but that's another level of symbolic icon.
