A colloquial direction and directional modifier used in either of two ways:
2. Relative to a mu-molecule, refers to the same side or direction as that mu-molecule's .2/3 radical. For example, in the image of R2F(1/3B1)S, the south direction is towards the lower-left corner of the image.
-0.529367 + 0.668227 i @ 0.005938
R2F(2/5B2)S (the 10th largest island)
Thus, "the south radical of R2F(2/5B2)S" is a feature in the upper part the image. In this case the direction "south" is relative.
