If you're upside down and look at the ground, are you looking down or up?

I figure you're looking down if you look at the ground. Even if you're laying in a hammock.

Your head is going to what is up in your point of view so technically it's up

Technically, there are directional terms for 'head end' which don't refer to 'up' (e.g. anterior/superior). We don't consider 'towards the head' to be up for dogs or fish.

I don't know many (/any?) contexts in which we define up and down as body- or head-centric as opposed to being fixed in the environment. Lying on your front is 'face down', if you were lying on your back, you would still tell someone to "look up at the sky" not to "look forwards at the sky".
