More thoughts about mapping
After mondays class I got to thinking about everything with maps, and went back through my notes and wanted to record what I wrote. I was very intrigued about the dead end comment. What defines or marks a dead end? How do we know it's a dead end...?
Interpretations of everything are very different depending on who's doing the interpreting-but that is what makes maps have the ability to occur-oh so many directions we can take-our life-our world-our universe was meant to be a map that never ends-infinity in all directions displacing and mergin time and everything that exists within it. That's why dead ends don't exist. "Everything is everything." Why can't we map brain activity to words to interpret what is happening in our heads in fractions of a second that make the big picture occur? I wish we could because I can't possibly record it myself. I am excited to see the art and brain symposium, two things that intrigue the most about life. In fact, they are everything. Art, and the brain..why didn't someone think of this sooner? Here's a quote I really enjoy. "There is no future that is not now, no past that is not now, time includes every moment."

What do you think about your blog as map? As enclosure system?
At this point, would you say that the line you "enjoyed" in October (on the anniversary of the birth of Limited Fork in October 2004, by the way)
is a line that you would call "illuminating" now?

now I see it and read it again, it has even more meaning to me than it did before. Yes, it would definitely be an illuminating line to me.
