#6 Counting coup in the final conflict
- Roger wrote:
With different groups of people wanting to use words defined in different
ways, how is anyone expected to communicate? If a person goes West far
enough, then they eventually end up going all the way round the world. So,
if I choose to define things I could point to my east and say America is
that way, then I am still in the west even with
respect to America. But by some strange arbitrary definition process of
humans, it is not usually defined in that way, and I am supposed to point
west. Why is that?
A compass pointing to magnetic north is the ultimate direction finder as
long as surveyors, cartographers, pilots, etc. can monitor the precise
movement of magnetic north. Maps and globes are popular solutions to the
conundrum that you cite.
I'm glad we worked through that definition.
