In the story I'm writing, the earth is a large flat mass. There is no edge to earth, so it is infinite in size. Above the earth is of course our normal atmosphere the same distance up and then space, which works vastly different in my world, which is where I come upon some problems.
I know that all of this is completely impossible scientifically. I'm not too concerned with being scientifically correct, however I do want to be able to give an explanation for how some things work in my universe.
The things I need help with are the following:
- The Sun/Moon System - How does the sun and moon work in this universe?
- Seasons - How do seasons work in this universe?
- Different Climate Systems - The story is set in the modern day USA where they discover other civilizations living beyond the current known world. How do I work with climate systems?
I'm really having trouble thinking up explanations to give for these problems that aren't just hand waving. Can anyone help me out?
