Imagine a map. It doesn't have anything to scale, geography is secondary to art, culture, religion, and fable - all of which would also appear on the document.
In this age of boggling draftsmanship, GPS, and computer enhanced skills it is strange to find ourselves completely and utterly unable to fabricate anything close to those made by our ancestors.
Our world - as it appeared long ago.
I wonder if all those computers and satellites and laser measurements accurate to one angstrom - could it be that they distort our view on our world and universe rather than clarify it? For all the problems with that map - something about it sings to my soul, even after close to 1000 years.
Have a great Saturday.
