I get what you're saying here.
I didn't read the original that closely, and so I
was thinking in terms of a point on a plane or
a point inside a 3-dimensional body, which got me
thinking along the lines of center-of-mass,
center-of-gravity, etc.

Gene's centroid sounded right.

Geographic center?

When making ASCII drawings, it pays to draw your
original in a monospaced font, as Steve did.
