Maps are systems of understanding. Geographical maps, drawings of engineers, scrapbooks of architects. Mathematics or literature are other systems of discovering, mind-mapping. Just like music, photography, Yoga, but the most important system of finding an orientation was for me: psychology (even ranking high above over medicine) – psychology leads us through the landscape of living, doctors describe how we will leave this world…

P.S.: NIETZSCHE: “To find a metaphor is to find a new thought”
Laura Bloomsbury (read her comment below) found the term “mini thought theses” for my efforts to introduce philosophy in few lines – I’ll try to make a list of these posts:
THE DISCOVERY OF SLOWNESS: https://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2014/09/10/the-discovery-of-slowness/
THE WAR ATTITUDE: https://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2014/09/08/the-war-attitude/
HISTORY LESSON: https://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2014/09/07/history-lesson/
I like your mini thought theses Frizz – psychology maps out how well we are not living life and points to a way out including all the hurdles to the exit!
p.s. to find a new thought is to find Nietzsche
hi Laura, thank you for the term “mini thought theses” = you are the first describer of my new strategy of posting: I learned that my long essays about philosophy from another decade are not compatible with our today’s fast reading. Next “mini thought thesis”: about the philosophy / strategy of “slowing down”: https://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2014/09/10/the-discovery-of-slowness/

Yes! There are many kinds of maps. I love them – that’s a handsome one you posted. It makes sense that a psychological map was most helpful to you. I like that one too!
