Given the nature of our space, quantum realism concludes that polar coordinates simulate it better than Cartesian coordinates. Cartesian space expands from a zero-point within it from but a polar space, like the surface of a balloon being blown up, doesn’t expand from any point on that surface. A balloon surface expands everywhere at once on the surface. Current physics agrees that our space is expanding “everywhere at once” rather than from a fixed point within our space.

Another feature of a circle is that any point can “begin” it. Equally the axis chosen to turn a circle into a sphere is arbitrary, so any node on a sphere surface could be a pole depending on the rotation axes used to create it. A sphere surface has as many different polar coordinates as there are axis poles but each set maps the same surface, which in network terms just changes how the nodes connect.

For a connected network to alter its links is easy, e.g. cell phone networks routinely change their connections to improve efficiency. So if each node locally configures its own connections as if it were the axis of every rotation, it can “paint” its own polar coordinates. This fits Einstein’s idea that every object “has its own space”. This approach doesn’t allow an objective view of space but as will be seen, our world has no need for that.

A network that distributes control lets every node choose its neighbors as if it were the center of all space. Each gets a slightly different view but that doesn’t matter if every view is equivalent. Quantum nodes decide themselves which nodes are neighbors just as a web page decides which other pages to link to. In this way, distributed polar coordinates allow a relative space, where every node has its own “frame of reference”.
