  1. I find myself thinking that the text should’ve been “truth it not yet lost”. Don’t know why. Perhaps my unconscious interpretation is bleaker than merited.

  2. I find myself unreasonably pleased that this map includes my home.

    I find myself reasonably displeased that it doesn’t include mine. :-P

  3. Maps are about finding things. If you can find it on a map (symbolic, personal, geographical), then it isn’t lost. The connection of a map and “the truth is not lost” seems to me to give directions to the truth. I like this very much.

    I see Hitherby as a gradual upward process of reconstruction, and even though that agrees with the biases in my world, I think the text backs me up.

    I agree.

  5. I seem to have read this differently than everyone else.

    I didn’t see “Truth is not lost” as one might read “All is not yet lost”…

    I read it as: “Truth is not something that gets lost. Trampled, hidden, obscured – sure; but never lost. Some things just can’t be accidental.”

    Might have been the lack of a “the”, or it might be my own drum thumping off beat, again.

    Just my own 2kr.

  6. And I read it as “Truth is eternal; and while it may not be apparent to any given person at any given moment in time, from the perspective of the Universe as a whole, each truth is ever-present.”

  7. the leader of the Qwik club said “I’d like things to mean something.”

    Well, they do mean something

    and it’s there.

    we just don’t know what that is yet.

  8. Oh, I don’t think Truth is that lost, really. She did get all the Orienteering merit badges, you know.
