From mirror to mirror — this is what I happen to dream of — the totality of things, the whole, the entire universe, divine wisdom could concentrate their luminous rays into a single mirror. Or perhaps the knowledge of everything is buried in the soul, and a system of mirrors that would multiply my image would then reveal to me the soul of the universe, which is hidden in mine.

In the 1880s, Gustav Holm led an expedition to the Ammassalik coast of eastern Greenland, where he met several Inuit communities who had had no prior direct contact with Europeans. He returned to Denmark with a set of tactile maps of the coast carved by a native of Umivik named Kunit.
These tactile maps were used to navigate the coastline, held inside the users’ mittens, and read by feel, rather than visually. These could be employed in a kayak by at night in conjunction with the stars.
To save space the outline of the coast is carried up one side and down the other.
