Heaven and Hell are philosophical concepts whose locations in general are referred to as being either “up or down”, while a horizontal, circular motion of the arm in fact may be a more appropriate indicator, since their loci is all around us.

given your assumptions of the “location” of hell (& heaven), perhaps these are not ‘philosophical concepts,’ but mytho-poetical ones; but whatever one’s cosmology, they still can be experientially & existentially ‘real’

“they still can be experientially & existentially ‘real”
Yes indeed, but only in the mind. It is a perception, since the essence of the concepts are theoretical, extolled in religious literature. The idea that heaven and hell are all around us is a panthesistic view, the reality of which can be observed physically.
