comment Flat or flattish earth issues
I recall speculation that there is a horizon because light, being an attribute of the sun god Yelm, is naturally attracted to the sky and so curves upwards, but this is only noticeable at great distances. Likewise Gold used to be the lightest of metals, but became heavy when the Sun God was slain in mythic times and descended to the underworld. Also the middle world is very small compared to the size of the sky dome, so although the sun is closer to the eastern lands in the morning than it is in the evening, this is a relatively small effect.
