Round or Flat, Does it Matter?

The world is still arguing about the shape of… well, the world. The debate has raged for millennia, regardless of how much evidence seems to push the scale to the argument for roundness. Me, I think they’re bloody fools for thinking it’s flat, but I also acknowledge it’s their right to do so and don’t see what difference it really makes in what’s really important.


Flat or round, log-roll ride gone awry or infinite plane balanced on innumerable turtles, Earth is Earth. It’s where we live, die, play, work, sleep and dream. Does the shape of it matter that much? Are the actually important aspects of the life of the average human, who will not be circumnavigating the globe or tracing the edges of the firmament during that life, in any way impacted by that shape?

I ask because it seems like a variant of that argument is going on a lot in the creative world, as well. People are oh so very concerned about the shape of things, of where they came from, of what format it uses instead of what the thing actually says, does or shows.

Just thinking, a lot of things would be a lot simpler if we’d stop trying to zoom out with the microscopes and telescopes, and started trying to zoom in, instead. Worry less about the giant shape and more about what’s going on down there.

But that’s just my opinion.
