According to atar, if you walk in our Minetexas world 32mil 32mil you find yourself at -32mil -32mil, and so, it is conceivable that, if you had the time, if one was to walk or fly on a redstone flying machine at a consistent angle, then you would end up exactly where you started. Minecraft, as a game, is imaginable in 3D, and in the third dimension there are only 2 shapes which could do this, a Torus and a Sphere. For other reasons, our world cannot be a Torus, so I am led to believe that it has to be a sphere. To make this simpler to visualise, if you imagine every block was ever so slightly curved, then after 64 million blocks, without realising, you would have done a flip. Like our own Earth, the curve would be to small to conceive, and would be hard to notice.

I have been thinking about this because believe it or not, I am currently on a plane over the Uzbekistan, travelling to a place where their feet are firmly on the ground, the wrong way up (Australia hem hem). Here, over the depths of Eurasia, the steppes, the greatest plains on the planet, the earth’s curvature is so visible. Far more visible than it would on the Minetexas Planet, mind!

We have to take into account that our planet is VAST. Earths diameter is 12500 km, whilst our diameter is over 5 times that, at 64000 km. To put that into perspective, we have the diameter of Neptune and Earth combined.

Larger still is our volume. We are more than 100 times that of Earth, about 130 times by my maths. More than that (not literally) we are not 1, not 2, but more than TWENTY times bigger than Uranus! (May fortune be sprinkled on your cheeks)

The only slight conundrum is why our planet is hollow 63 metres below sea level…
