Sol is a three-dimensional (left/right, forward/back, up/down) space with the following bizarre property.
As you move upwards it becomes easy to move forward/back but hard to move left/right. The exact opposite happens when you move downwards: it becomes difficult to move forward/back but easy to move left/right.
I wanted to capture some of the geometry of Sol in an image. Towards the top the lines tend to flow forward/back. But as you look down they begin to flow from left to right.
