Ever seen a map of the world on the other side of the world?
We’re so used to seeing our continent dead left or dead center.
Fly to China
is pushed all the way
to the right corner
like it’s wearing the dunce cap
cause China is the center of the earth
it’s disorienting to see
the world through
you look at the map and think it’s broken
“What’s North America doing all the way over on the right side of the map?
Get it over in the middle where it belongs!”
History is even more relative.
It’s written by the fathers of your country
ask a Brazilian who came up with the airplane
the Wright brothers is the wrong answer.
History is relative
Geography is relative
hell, even Math is relative since the Theory of Relativity
is there nothing Absolutely True?
but from which text book?
