- Oct 1, 2004Local or inertial frame of reference (in physics terms). I locate the
guy wires as they are in the greater environment, you might locate
them in relation to the hammock. I always visualize things as
orthogonally oriented even though I know it isn't exactly North South
etc. (Architects call things "plan north". So in the middle of the
night I know where the hammock is but I can't remember how it or the
guy lines are placed until I trip over them (literally). It is part of
a minor learning disability.
I always!! give directions North South, I don't know left from right
in any consistent manner unless I am facing north. I almost flunked my
driving test here and in England because of that. Winding English
streets drove me nuts for two years. I really like the way Brigham
Young planned out the Salt Lake Valley, Cartesian coordinate system,
and the mountains are always to the east for a reference. Jerry and
Kate would have to try real hard to get lost in Salt Lake.
