"Every map has its Night Sky because the Map is not the Territory -- & yet it is....

Ordinary maps project ideological inscriptions onto the body of landscape -- but a magical map would share essences with that landscape & engage in co-realization with it. Such a map could then act as a pilgrim's guide to the Profane or-- Secular Illumination -- a pagan theory of Sacred Earth as cartomantic spell. Looked at this way, even ordinary maps possess an "invisible" or nocturnal dimension, or rather a set of stars & asterisms that replicate or mirror its topography & hydrography in the sleeping sky -- 'As Above, So Below' -- sciences that (as Novalis says) will then have been poeticized."
