The life long research that led to this concept has the following line of thought:

1. Earth is flat

Observational Proof: looking out of the window

Commentary: The philosophical background of this proof is the Zetetic principle, that is, personal observation always weighs more than mathematical calculations or conclusions based on star movements

2. The surface of earth has been measured for 100s of years. I assume that these measurements are largely correct and my personal flight history (or the one of anybody I know) is not in variance with these measurements.

3.The flat earth map that accords best with these measurements is the Waterman- "projection".

4. It is nice, because it looks like a butterfly. Everybody likes butterflies.

5. The wings flap in an unknown, but probably complicated manner, causing the apparent circle movements of the stars. That creates the illusion that earth is a sphere. The reason, why the wings behave this way I do not know, but I assume it has something to do with the origin of the butterfly (a spherical cocoon) Some FEer with more mathematical skill then me (John Davis?) should calculate the exact flapping pattern.

6. Afterwards somebody could make an animation and put it on YouTube.
