My point still stands from a philosophical perspective though.

If we take things in greater scales, we will of course get to the point that common definitions and ideas do no longer apply like they do to a much smaller scale that is common to a person in their daily life. Directions mean of course nothing in an infinite, void space. But in a defined space, like a living room or just a box, they become meaningful again.
So trying to find the logical application of certain things on scales that don't work for it, is a task that will give you answers to your question. One can say the sun is hot because we know it is, since it heats up the Earth. If we ask what is hot on a universal scale, we simply don't know. Which is why scale to limit the question is always needed.

But doesnt one's world also change with their perspective? So to the one doing a handstand up is down in their world.

I suppose you win from the philosophical perspective too. You got a point.

No. Just because you make a handstand, the world isn't suddenly upside down as well on an objective level.
When you tilt your head away from your torso, you now look down, instead of up. Vise versa when you tilt it towards your chest.
What you see and perceive changes. But that's only in your perspective.
If you were to grab a hot kettle and burn your hand, it'd be very hot of course. With an ovenglove, it'd be not as hot to you anymore. But the kettle, objectively, is still hot.

This is Frontier flight L-275. Can we land?

Comparing my life to a HOI4 focus, it would be this

Life Drained

Coffee consumption: +100%
Happiness: -10%
Sleep efficiency: -60%
Daily energy: -20%
Muscle fatigue: +45%
Studying: +200%
Description: Life has gotten too difficult. Exercising has left your muscles drained and you can barely manage to sleep on time.

A good argument.

One of Argana's famous provinces is Solução-Ramal, in the east of the country. Named by Iberian merchants, the province is so named as it is an autonomously-governed extension of the merchant-founded province of Solução.
