4. A child's world is a map.  It learns to live in the world by mapping it.
Its map of the world is a means of being.  A child could not think or move
without its map of the world.  The map must contain and describe both
the known and the unknown places.  Nothing may be unmapped.
Anything unmapped would belike a hole in nothingness.  A child's mind
resembles a ruler, if part of the ruler moves the whole moves.
