The April prompt is: “Map”

We use maps to chart the land and sea. We use maps to represent any space we can enter or embody or imagine. In his 2010 book Self Comes to Mind: Constructing the Conscious Brain, neuroscientist Antonio Damasio tells us that “perception, in whatever sensory modality, is the result of the brain’s cartographic skill.” What is lost, found, or created in the conversion of organic reality to data? What do maps mean to you?
