Wayfind­ing: The Sci­ence and Mys­tery of How Hu­mans Nav­i­gate the World

Paradise - - Living -

By M.R. O’Con­nor (Af­firm Press)

Jour­nal­ist M.R O’Con­nor put down her GPS and em­barked on a jour­ney to fig­ure out how hu­mans nav­i­gate the world. O’Con­nor trav­elled to the Arc­tic, the Aus­tralian bush and the South Pa­cific to in­ter­view en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists, an­thro­pol­o­gists and mas­ter nav­i­ga­tors to try to un­der­stand the neu­ro­log­i­cal ba­sis of spa­tial ori­en­ta­tion, which has been de­fined as our nat­u­ral abil­ity to main­tain our body ori­en­ta­tion and po­si­tion. In her cap­ti­vat­ing nar­ra­tive, O’Con­nor makes a point for dis­cov­er­ing the world away from screens and re­minds us of our ca­pac­ity – and love – for ex­plo­ration and sto­ry­telling.
