Mind mapping/Google mapping

Was down the gym last night when surprisingly I had a creative thought amongst the rowing and running machines. I recalled the notion of ‘reference points’ another way of imaging personal experience which gave value to the fact that its the quality of the experience that counts. You can spend years at a job and can little in the way of personal reference points, but then experience in one event something which vividly sticks in your mind as a reference point (this links in with recent ideas about how we work as ‘fast pattern completers’). When similar experiences take place this becomes the reference point by which you evaluate and action. It would be interesting if it would be possible to map spatially these points, like a mind map, to show their links visually in such a way that people could represent the complexity of their own experience.
