The metric paper doesn't have to be a rectangle. A right triangle with angles 45-90-45 can be exploited in the same fashion, both in terms of expanding or shrinking proportionately, and fitting multiple iterations of various levels on a single triangular (or for convenience, square) sheet of paper. Not surprising, given that 1.414 is the square root of 2.

Anyone can pick a frame of reference for which something doesn't matter. Just because there are lots of frames of reference, doesn't mean that the bigger ones are more important than the smaller ones. The most important ones would be the ones closest to you that you can affect. Organize something. Try a new thing. Experience the frame for which you have been given to reference. This is how we discovered everything around us. We used the basis of right now and then expanded upon it until we reach the limits of our understanding. No need for existential crisis. Just because you can't meaningfully affect the bigger frame doesn't mean the one you have is worth nothing. Size can be deceiving. Your choice which frame is meaningful.

Now I hope we are in a simulation because the fear of accidently traveling in the wrong direction to leave the area where galaxies exist in scary to think about (assuming we can travel faster than light somehow (maybe the speed of dark?))

In all seriousness, I work with both imperial and metric paper, units, 3D objects, etc. in my physicist job and I can clearly see why the metric system is far better firsthand. The US definitely needs to switch to the metric system, but doing so will be a huge challenge.
