Any origin is never an infinitesimal point, but a sphere of small radius
that forms a basis for measurement. When the radius is small, the sphere
approximates an infinitesimal point, and measurements from either the inner
or outer surface of the sphere are the same. For a sphere of large radius,
events are measured from either the inner or outer surface of the sphere, as
well. Consequently, inverted space is the same reality as noninverted
space, as I demonstrate with the mathematics at my web page,

Stop right there and explain, please. What do you mean by the outer and
inner surface? The surface of a sphere has no thickness.

If you're thinking of a sphere made, say, out of physical material, so
that it has some thickness, then the outer and inner surface area are
ALWAYS a little different, regardless of how small the radius gets.

You have to explain what you mean.
