Just thought, that our perception of the world is heavily influenced by the representations of it … like a map. Just to demonstrate, a question: Assume you are a pilot. You are flying from Frankfurt to San Francisco. You are a lazy pilot and you are allowed by air traffic control to set the shortest direct course on the autopilot and don’t touch it again. What is the initial heading you are setting? Just answer with the first thought! No degrees needed … just something like west,east,south our southeast.
