Is this image a map? Of what, or where?

How does the world appear from a satellite? Our country? Your town?

We map the stars, the planets, the polar caps, the temperatures of different locations on earth. We map our brains, our bodies, our locales. A human need to categorize, to label, to Know...

How do you map a heart? A soul? A thought? A belief?

And how do you map desire and its deep etchings upon the spirit?

Know your own bone; gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw it still.
--Henry David Thoreau
