how can one dispel the error that claims the sea level is higher than the highest mountain?
if one looks at the earth as a semicircle, one must remember that the sea is always located in the vertex of this semicircle. it is wrong simply to relate the vertex to an imaginary point on the circular line. logically, the distance from the vertex to the base of the semicircle is always greater than the distance of a straight line drawn from a point on the circular line to the base of the semicircle. hence the erroneous conclusion that the sea is higher than the highest mountain.
