Monocular depth cues all seem to be about comparisons and perceptions of what we know to be true.

Part of depth-perception is the ability to perceive the distance of an object. There are a variety of things that we use to judge how far away an object is. Some of these cues can be processed by just one eye, which is why they are referred to as monocular cues.
is this how they make the 3 d pictures?
Monocular depth cues create 2D images; here visual perception is processed by the relationships of two or more objects, which are defined as linear perspective, interposition, texture gradients, relative size and height in the visual field.
Psychology - Monocular depth cues
Monocular depth cues
Focusing on the eye of a needle. A monocular or binocular depth cue?
Linear Perspective:  A secondary monocular depth cue  where
parallel lines appear to converge, creating a sense of distance. This can
be observed when standing in the middle of railroad tracks. Click here to
view a short video on linear perspective.
Interposition:  A secondary monocular depth cue  where one object
which is closer, obscures another, more distant object. For example, if a
fence obscures part of a house, we know that the fence is in front of the
Texture Gradients:  A secondary monocular depth cue  where the
amount of detail in a scene decreases as the distance increases. For
example, if you look at a field of sunflowers, the closer flowers are more
detailed while the distant flowers are less distinct and more hazy.
Relative size:  A secondary monocular depth cue  where if separate
objects are expected to be of the same size, the larger ones are seen as
being closer. If an artist wishes to depict two objects of the same size at
different distances, creating a sense of depth and distance on a
2-dimensional surface, they would draw the more distant object smaller.
Height in the visual field  (Also referred to as height in horizontal
plane): A secondary monocular depth cue  which reflects the fact that
distant objects appear higher in a picture and near objects are low in the
visual field. In this way, artists create a sense of depth and distance in
