WHAT PARTS OF THE WORLD ARE ON THE RIGHT HAND, AND WHAT PARTS ARE ON THE LEFT.
PYTHAGORAS, Plato, and Aristotle say that the eastern
parts of the world, from whence motion commences, are of
the right, those of the western are of the left-hand of the
world. Empedocles, that those that are of the right-hand
are towards the summer solstice, those of the left towards
the winter solstice.
