It is important to be oriented when travelling. In ancient times, Chinese compasses marked south as the point to reach, but north was identified as a place where death awaited.

Nowadays the north is the point that these tools mark, the north protects itself, the north is already where everyone would like to get to. 

The representations of the world mark the north up, powerful, rich... however the world is a sphere, orbiting in nothingness, where there is no up or down, no north or south and we decide where we want the red arrow to point.
