Bucky-Fuller's dymaxion map, around since the mid-40s. Not found in schools as it might push aside the UP-DOWN programme for the more aeronautical IN-OUT programme. Reprogramming where possible with in-out for down-up changes ones thinking easily and allows me to inform myself far more accurately within universe. It synchronises with our position on the world-sphere growing out from the centre into space, to the stars. atlas could do with it as it might alleviate his holding-the-world-up programme.
I tried this out on the word 'depressed' - pushing down and could only replace it with 'contraction'. Thus I could say a period of depression = a contraction presaging a new birth.
UP etymologically = a form of out. We can see this in BLOW-UP which I think = enlarging outwardly in an omnidirectional halo.
Though I have no evidence for this I wonder if this map has been in existence before Fuller's 1943 discovery of it.
Do check out animated versions it.
