What is 四方?

What is '四方' in the end?

Ancient Chinese thought the ground shaped like a huge square with four right angles in which center was the Middle Kingdom.  四 means 'four' and 方 refers to ‘direction’. So 四方 should represent ‘the whole society even world’! 
We have noticed that:Deeply influenced by the traditional national cultural President Xi is a good example to explain the famous saying '好男儿志在四方!" who believes China can not be well developed if without the cooperation with other countries and all people in the globe-village can share the same sweet fruits harvested under the same Sun!The wise leader‘s heart is always beating for all citizens on the horizon line of the Earth whose chest can hold up the Pacific Ocean that I imagine! That is why China is getting more open to the outside and more countries are ready to work with us for construction. The world welcomes the bullet-train from China and feel terrible when seeing the American warships patroling around as ‘police'!

    Thanks for your comment which has driven me think a lot!
    In China we call this kind of similar diseases as ‘中风’which means ‘Being hit by wind’! In other words, ‘Tom has been beaten down by chilly wind.’In serious case the patient can not move arm and leg even lost the speaking ability!
    According to traditional Chinese medicinal theory, humans should live in normal condition. Or we might become ill at anytime if we break the routine living habit!
    For an example, that lad Smith in our village jumped into the deep pond for cooling down his sweating body from heavy labor farming work. This jumping became a nightare for him and family: He got a strange illness that cost him a sum of money for treatment. At last he  became half a fool up to now with little words.
    In the medicinal circle doctors often talk about air-condition-disease which means that many people become ill from usage of the modern cooling machine!
    In the freezing factory your bone-joint may easily get into trouble due to instant temperature changing when you enter or come out of the special workshop!
    In hot summer the surface of the road is so hot which temperature reaches 80 centigrade degrees. How do you feel when you step onto the black ground from the car with cooling system? Can you stand up the challenge of the steep temperature change?
