A simple theory of how it was found that the earth is round…

In ancient times, they used to think that the earth was just a flat expense. One man, with his gaze – which his love makes very acute, like that of all lovers – was able to glimpse far, far away in the depths of dreaming about his lover. It did not matter that he has not yet met this lover. He has not yet been graced by her presence, and so he had deduced that in fact, the earth cannot be flat, because it is the curve of the earth that conceals her from his desire.
