"Mappery" - the Concept

I've been trying to flesh out the common thread running through all the things that intrigue me that I'd like to make this blog about. I decided the word "mappery" pretty much conjures it up for me. I'll define it very loosely as exploring and understanding our (internal and external) worlds in order to improve our lives.

External World:
I love the gamut of exploring / manipulating / hacking space. I.E. exploring “virtual worlds”, an appreciation for miniature versions of things, urban exploration (on and off the radar – discovering hidden nooks and crannies of cities, abandoned buildings, rooftops, underground, etc.), panoramas / 360 degree pictures, parkour / free running (finding the most efficient way to get from point a to point b which just so happens to look really freaking awesome), etc.

Internal World:
I’m fascinated by how the brain works / why we think the way we do – more specifically, how to change the way we think to improve our lives – i.e. “mind hacking” and cognitive reconditioning.
I find mind maps to be fascinating: they can be illuminating, insightful, revealing, and more-often-than-not really beautiful to look at.
