  13. 13. “In time, those Unconscionable Maps no longer satis"ed, and the CartographersGuilds struck a Map of the Empire whose size was that of the Empire, and whichcoincided point for point with it.The following Generations, who were not so fond of the Study of Cartography astheir Forebears had been, saw that that vast Map was Useless, and not withoutsome Pitilessness was it, that they delivered it up to the Inclemencies of Sun andWinters.In the Deserts of the West, still today, there are Tattered Ruins of that Map,inhabited by Animals and Beggars; in all the Land there is no other Relic of theDisciplines of Geography.”“On Exactitude in Science.. In that Empire, the Art of Cartography”Jorge Luis Borges, Collected Fictions, Translated by Andrew Hurley, 1999
