Sometimes, I'll admit, I think of the earth as flat. There are even times
(heaven forbid!) when my thinking is entirely consumed with the shapes of
peaks and valleys. But what I am interested here is a related concept -
centeredness. I have heard that some astronomers find it useful to
discard the sun-centered model in much the same way as the earth-centered
model became outdated. Does anyone know if this idea of centeredness is
changing its center?
