Once upon a time, when the earth was flat

Once upon a time, when the earth was flat (and the centre of our solar system) we human beings thought we were pretty smart cookies. The edge of our world map featured the Latin phrase “HC SVNT DRACONES” or “Here be Dragons”, which is now widely considered map shorthand for “Here be other places we currently know bugger all about.”

At the time we thought we knew it all, and yet with the benefit of hindsight, we were proven wrong. We discovered that the earth is in fact round and that the sun is the centre of the solar system. This story is a great reminder that you should never stop striving to broaden your horizons whether you’re 22, 52 or 102. In the words of Shakespeare we should constantly seek “unpathed waters, undreamed shores.”
