It's really an interesting question.
Only because there are two other round things in space we can see with the naked eye and one or two more that can be seen with a cheap telescope, thousands upon thousands of photographs and videos taken by thousands and thousands of people most of whom can't doctor an image.
There's also other examples of anything that spins and erodes becoming round-ish over time.
I guess maybe the Sun and Moon could be 2 dimensionally round and no matter where you are on earth and no matter what position they are in the sky they are always facing everyone on the planet directly at all times.
I suppose everyone who's ever been in a jet and can see the curve of the Earth are just seeing things.
I guess even though we can see another planet with a telescope but can't see the other side (or the end) of an Ocean with the same telescope doesn't mean anything at all.
I hope someday this question is answered. It really keeps me up at night.
I lived in Kansas for a while, and could come close to agreeing with you. Wichita.
I would like to pretend I knew that about the moon but I didn't. Thanks for making me learn something at 2 am on a Saturday night.That's how the moon is currently. We only ever see one side, the same side, any time weve ever looked at it. Theoretically, it could be flat on the back side and we'd never know.
Yeah and CGI was invented 80 years ago!The Earth is a quadrilateral multi dimensional dodecahedron, cover in cheese, dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with almonds, stretched to infinity and tied in a quantum knot and baked to a delicate crunch. That is my theory it is mine, and belongs to me and I own it, and what it is too.
