Humans generally first defined "East" by magic magnetism voodoo,
and generally the Sun rising "over there" in nomadic capabilities regardless,
irrespective of trivial degenerate cases in modern science. A
definition unlikely
to change geophysically, till well beyond first voyages to the stars,
thus compelling
new contextually relavant astronomical definitions upon humanity at that time.
