It could be, if you so chose that to be the case, but the normal practice is that numbers increase from left to right, or decrease from right to left. The general practice is left to right, bottom to top, and page outward toward the reader for direction of increasing value in z, y, z space.

You must be from the mirror universe. It's this way over here:

Left -3 -2 -1 0 +1 +2 +3 Right
