The world was created flat, completely flat, as a table, but without the feet, of course. However in that time the men started to fight a lot of wars. There was war of the easterners against the westerners, of the northerners against the southerners. Each side believed their own side was better than the opposite one. So, in one night, while everybody was sleeping, God twisted the world and shaped it with His two huge hands and made the world like a ball. When the extreme easterners woke up and saw that there was more east to go they went more and more. The same happened with the westerners, with the southerners, and with the northerners. But when the easterners thought they were more and more in an extreme east point they realized they were now in the west. The western were in the east, the northerners in the south, and the southerners in the north. So they realized in this new world there is no extreme, there is no real east, west, north, nor south. The most extreme eastern point is western, and they are all the same.
God made the world as a ball to show us there isn’t up, neither down, nor right, nor left. Nobody is better than others for being born is some special corner. In a ball there is no corner.
