Final 414 thoughts

I've learned that the center does not always need to mean the middle. Therefore getting somewhere via a maze and a seemingly hazardous route may also be the appropriate way. Its about sticking to a road less traveled. If I were walking through a labyrinth, I may have the assurance of arriving somewhere safely in all circumstances. Walking a maze is taking a risk. It means submitting oneself to all opportunities, both good and bad. So although both paths may lead you to the same destination, the process of traveling is understandably different. I may experience the calmness of a circular path, void of confusion and danger on a labyrinth. And on a maze, I may understand what is meant by failure and perhaps perseverance. Maybe these lessons converge on both types of paths. Each journey differs from the next no matter what the mode of travel. It depends on how we choose to steer ourselves. The ideas of these systems of navigation stretch the boundaries of what is possible.

So beautifully expressed: "he center does not always need to mean the middle."

What I like about a location designated temporary center is access to radii,

the realities of multiple directions
from an access point

and the center that a selected becomes,
as many radii available from the reconfiguration of center.

Also appealing about being lost
is that being lost occurs somewhere

a somewhere that is also available as center
from which multiple reality systems bifurcate.
