CARTOGRAPHY is the Art of drawing up maps. Everything pertaining to this Art is called CARTOGRAPHIC, a maker of maps, charts, and one who draws up maps is a CARTOGRAPHER.
In a sense, Maps of Consciousness, Mind Maps, psycho-cartographic and meta-cartographic Work is all related to the Archetype of The Way, The Journey. This is, in turn, the three facets that crop up in the definition of Tantra as: Starting point, or Ground; The Path, and The Goal. And also to the Vehicles, the Yanas.

It is Saturn/Kronos who separates Heaven and Earth by castrating Uranus; Kronos as TIME, guarding the Doors to KETHER, BINAH and HOKMAH, obstructing and changing.
Sitting in the front of the cinema and the back of the theatre (cheap seats) also indicates use of polarities on the Outer Fringes, e.g. Plutonic - Inhabitors of the Lands of the Outer Borders. Liminality.
