    =======================

    "Some of the questions we might ask are: Who becomes responsible for separating the Real from ideology? Does that attempt lead us back to a notion of prelinguistic, primordial reality unstructured by language? Is there a way to perceive "the Real" transparently, without depending on deeply problematic translations of the world into word? Is there any foundational Reality apart from our constitutive and perspectival translation of it?"

    "Because its meanings are neither quantitative nor verifiable, poetry may offer different, subtler, and more complex expressions than the language of information and commerce."

    "I myself am less interested in "nature poetry"--where nature features as theme--than in poetry, sometimes called ecopoetry, that investigates--both thematically and formally--the relationship between nature and culture, language and perception."

    ================================================== ====

    I tend to see the poem as ecopoetic.
    Seeing it this way gives me a comprehensive knowledge of geography.
    The Ancient Egyptians had a good grasp of the natural world via informational notation. They had a separate translations fore numbers other than accounting. Certainly hieroglyphics served as an understanding of the natural world. The pictographs of the ancient Hebrews were actually portions of larger pictographs and can be reassembled to show the original pictographs. These particular pictographs were for the language to build the world/societies. And enslave the societies thru religion. So effective that it is still going on till this very day. Just because people have been insulated from the information/understandings does not mean they don't exist.

    So there is the name Zion in the two letters at the top.
    And the combination of the 2 form a pictograph of a snail.

    • Jon: “I’ve also read that you wrote the treasure hunt for an unemployed redneck with 12 kids. Does this mean that all of those people who are delving into Native American history, Greek mythology etc. are looking too deeply? Can hunters really get to the treasure location with just a good map, the poem, and a decent knowledge of words?”

      FF: “I wrote the book for everyone who feels a sense of wanderlust. In your last question if you change the last word to geography, my answer would be yes.”
      ===============================

      In your last question if you substitute words, my answer would be yes.
      If you substitute your word with my word.
      Words are language. Change 'words' to 'geography'.

      Change the word.
      Change words.
      Change the language.

      Can hunters really get to the treasure location with just a good map, the poem, and a decent knowledge of geography ?

              Do people really understand what geography is ?

              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography

              " Geography is often defined in terms of two branches: human geography and physical geography.[4][5] Human geography deals with the study of people and their communities, cultures, economies, and interactions with the environment by studying their relations with and across space and place.[6] Physical geography deals with the study of processes and patterns in the natural environment like the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and geosphere. "

              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_geography

              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrosphere

              Even more so people ignore the meaning of wanderlust it seems.

                  The poem itself says as much. imo.

                  Hear me all and listen good seems to be saying that you need to understand what it is he is saying.
                  ( It doesn't matter what words I use, as long as the reader understands what I mean. )

                  And seeing that 'effort' is then immediately listed as a critical part of the process, then it's not really a stretch to interpret this as meaning that the 'effort' is required as a part of understanding "hear me all and listen good".

                    "All" seems to be grouping :
                    "hear me all and listen good".
                    "and leave my trove for all to seek"

                    Even though they are different all's.
                    One includes the searcher in question and the other does not.

                      It's interesting that in SB203, Forrest appears to be addressing both of theses topics.
                      'Bohemia' is a word that has been on my radar for a couple of years now.
                      And it doesn't take a diploma to recognize the relationship to 'wanderlust'.

                      It's even more interesting when he says "Most chapters contain interesting geographical descriptions of the person . . ."
                      Right there, he seems to be showing by example, that there are alternative fields of 'geography', that the average person might not consider.

                            • 203 is mind-blowing.
                              There's talk elsewhere, that it is about a lead dog. And there's been some pretty interesting points made.
                              Not everyone will agree, for various reasons. But, this one is making my head spin.
                              I've got a few things I'm not seeing mentioned yet, though.
