The Map Is Not The Territory

The map is not the territory.

Today I unpack the premise that the world we perceive, map and subsequently project outward is not the world we think it is.

This meme can apply to friends, family, partners, co-workers etc, wherein the map of them we construct is not the territory, or the ‘real’ tangible ‘them’. Distortions occur and understanding this is a great tool in the battle for consciousness.

I relate this meme to its component parts on the Tree of Life of Hermetic Kabbalah, namely the sephiroth Hod & Netzach respectively.

About me:

Interconnect is the creation of Oliver Arthur Morgan.

I look at the exploration of consciousness through guided Vipassana meditations, esoteric philosophy & self-transformation content alongside original musical productions and journeys by DJ.

As part of my lifelong spiritual journey i healed myself in 2012 of 15 years worth of alcoholism and drug addiction through a combination of meditation, bio-psychosocial interventions and the use of plant teachers in a shamanic setting.

I now feel compelled to spread what i have learnt in a bid to help other people make themselves excellent!

I teach 1-to-1 Vipassana meditation and self transformation via Skype, or in person as well as delivering live group workshops across the Blackdown Hills – times vary, see Twitter for details.

I also offer substance misuse key work and metaphysical guidance, having worked both in the criminal justice system and the community as a recovery worker. I hold a space for you to talk freely about life experiences and phenomena while working on a personal and energetic level.
