BE OPEN TO BE CLOSE

Why do we have to see the world always in the same way? Everybody knows how it looks like. Why do you have to see flight routes always in the same way? That is not so relevant. What do flight routes tell us? Nothing. Flight routes link countries, reducing distances between each other and adding opportunities. The direct accessibility to another country depends on how much routes you can choose to that country. The world is shaped in a new way: more routes link two countries, closer they are in the map, in our world and in the real world. New distances, new countries, different accessibility.
