    The significance of a map is in the eye of the beholder while the significance of the territory is in the eye of reality.

    The idea, "the map is not the territory", is a philosophical idea.

    Of course it is not about maps and territory, but perception, epistemology or ways of seeing.

    I know that. And this thread is a literal (and therefore mis)application of the idea.

    I didn't think I'd have to spell that out to you.

    That statement always struck me as tautological at best.
