He did this by recognising the features, by fixing points of reference and then once he was oriented to the familiar and to the scale or manner in which the familiar was reproduced, he could begin to add his own layers of detailed information.
But how can anyone begin to find a way on a map of trails to heaven?
The route to heaven is not wholly unfamiliar, however. As it happens, heaven is to one side of, and at the same level as the point where the trails to animals all meet. Many men know where this point is, or at least of its approach trails, from their own hunting dreams.
