Representational mode trumps knowledge
For some reason, I prefer the "classic view" - the earth is flat, like it's supposed to be. And one has a horizontal, rather than top-down, relation to the events/photos leaping up. And the photos can be made bigger. And one is not in some god-like/forsaken space above, all alone, in the dark.
Because it matters, even though this is strictly a contrivance of representation, to think these representations are gregariously in your company, rather than little blips being emitted by a planet far below.
