What map?
some of the experiences in your being can be recognized as representations of that which happens outside of your being.   the former can be called the “map” and the latter, the “territory”.   of course if you do not acknowledge anything outside of your being, that conception would be  quite absurd.

I was just wondering where you are seeing a map in that picture! laughing
See Korzybski one of the fathers of semantics. TR used the phrase in NLP courses. The picture has both a map of the weather patterns & a model showing the map. Other ways it is much like a play on words (maybe even fun).laughing
