Is there any HORIZON vertical in nature in universe ?
The horizon is said as the meeting point of earth and sky. Though these can't tough each other but appear to be touched in a row. I could not find the reason as to why the horizon is so horizontal ? Is there any horizon in the universe which is vertical ? I need the answer.
It depends on the angle you are standing at... If you could somehow glue your feet to the side of your house, for example, and stand sideways while defying gravity, the horizon would then look vertical to you. Horizontal is in relation to your position, as in horizontal to your location-coordinate.
Thanks Insane Mundane, for your valuable comments and answering the question, but the illustrations are related with the situations as to which we can imagine whatever we see around us. My question still standing to be answered and seeking the reason
I don't know what you mean, unless you are seeking some cosmic vertical slit that leads into a vortex which transports you into another universe?
This is a most interesting question, and I will expand it with another:
Think of a fly that has landed on the wall. When it was flying "straight," its horizon was horizontal in front of it. Now, sitting on the wall, where is its horizon? Is it correct to call it still "the horizon?" As the Hub suggests, the horizon is now vertical!
Similarly, when the fly lands on the ceiling.... it is now upside down! Does it see the same horizon?
It looks like Insane Mundane's and my minds were locked in unison while writing our comments, lol.
Dang, I haven't seen your philosophic backside in quite a while; ha!
Good to see you, hope the world is treating you well.... and greetings to India.
Well, I'm not from India, but I did fall off the spaceship and land somewhere in the USA, a while back. Thanks... ; )
Thanks jonnycomelately, for your answer which somehow reaches to the soul of the question. but still, the satisfactory answer seems too far to be reached. The possibilities of actual horizon in universe which is vertical in nature, is unanswered.
I think cosmologists have determined that, in fact, the universe is flat...
In fact? I thought that was still up for endless debate? In addition to the 'universe is flat' theory, some still think it is spherical while many believe it's a hyperbolic universe. Personally, I haven't checked the entire cosmos out yet.
I don't think Universe even has a shape. You are never sure anyway
