His Red Right Hand / 1
Now inhabiting a diagram: A point on a (flattened) reference ellipsoid; a location (though it has no top or bottom; no left or right) described by the coordinates:
LAT. 39°50’ LONG. – 98°35’ NE 1/4 – SE 1/4 – S32 – T2S – R11W.
This dead-center constitutes the centroid of a complex shape inscribed on a (flattened) reference ellipsoid whose characteristics are determined to the left and right by the erosive and accretive actions of two oceans and to the top and bottom by the existence of lakes, seas and political expediencies.
