"The Dymaxion map or Fuller map is a projection of a world map onto the surface of an icosahedron, which can be unfolded and flattened to two dimensions." "The Dymaxion map does not have any "right way up". Fuller argued that in the universe there is no "up" and "down", or "north" and "south": only "in" and "out". Gravitational forces of the stars and planets created "in", meaning ‘towards the gravitational center’, and "out", meaning "away from the gravitational center". He attributed the north-up-superior/south-down-inferior presentation of most other world maps to cultural bias." "Showing the continents as "one island earth" also helped […] explain the journeys of early seafaring people, who were in effect using prevailing winds to circumnavigate this world island." (x)
Cultural bias in maps? Yup. The map we are all taught to perceive as “the world” in disjointed and warped. Greenland is the same size as Africa, when in reality, Africa is 14x larger than Greenland.
When the world is opened and leveled and the north/superior, south/inferior cultural bias is removed, you see that we are all living on one long chain of closely connected islands.
10 people can look at the same event and see 10 different meanings in it. Our perception determines our reality. My goal recently has been to see the opportunity in everything that happens around me, and my clients, and in turn I am being shown paths to reach my dreams that were never there before. If you are looking at an event in your life as negative, you are missing the opportunity that opened up as a result of that event. Looking for the positive in everything isn’t a mind trick, its a way of life that will change things rapidly. #Peace #Positivity #Perception #Optimism #ThankYouLord
The most important thing you will find in life that will have magical results within you and outside of you is to maintain a sense of gratitude toward the Supreme Being and the universe (one in the same). Spread the blessings to those that need it, even if it is by offering them an ear to talk to or a kind compliment when they need one. You will find that will speed up the healing process and at the same time, add bountiful blessings to your experience. Heaven is a state of mind and when you overcome the obstacles to cultivate and maintain it within you, you will then see that it is also around you… and always has been.
