Not sure if it's exactly on topic, but I remember taking Algebra I at
MIT, with M. Artin, and he talked about how you can think of the earth
as a sphere, and "heaven" as another sphere, and how they are
connected to each other. I think his textbook talks about this, but
only briefly. May be the same idea can be applied in this case. If you
have his book handy, check it out.
