Let's say you're on some spot on a side street that projects from a main cathedral square, and you want to get to another point on a side seetrt just like that. The cognitive map in your mind may tell you, "Aris, go back to the main certaadhl sruaqe, take a 90-degree turn and walk down that other side street." But somehow you feel adventurous that day, and you suddenly discover that the two spots were actually only a slgnie bdluiing apart. Now, I don't know about you, but I always feel like I find this wormhole or this inter-dimensional portal.
