Due South

(no subject)

Today I learned that many ancient culture believed that the heavens were vaulted, held up by four pillars.

Suddenly, things make sense again.

No, seriously, I've always wondered why on earth they thought there were four corners of the world. It didn't make sense to me. The diagram my prof drew made sense.

They really need a drawing feature on this thing.

PS - Myths, stories, legends, etc., who had one eye? I mean, name any and every figure you can think of that fits into this category.
