WHAT IS THE SOCIETY FOR LIMINAL CARTOGRAPHY?

LIMINAL: An intermediate space on a threshold between two states. An in-between place.
LIMINAL CARTOGRAPHY: "Like UBER, but FOR GHOSTS!"

The Society for Liminal Cartography maintains the original crowd-sourced map of personal experiences at Liminal.Earth. Seen a spook? Visited by Tiny Colorful Men from Another Place? Had a squirrel smile at you, knowingly? If this is you, the Society for Liminal Cartography needs you to PUT IT ON THE MAP!

I was driving from my home on 34th ave. S.W. in West Seattle, south on 34th when after a couple of blocks I noticed on my left, standing in front of a garage of a house a creature, standing upright on two legs with a hairy face and two pairs of horns, one set emerging from his forehead and turning upright and another set coming out of his mouth area and turning downward. His other features were mostly obscured by hair....

ABOUT THE SOCIETY FOR LIMINAL CARTOGRAPHY

Founded in 1638 by radical mapmaker Tiridata "Martichora" Ariana of Isfahan (Latinized to Theodora Manitcora), the Society for Liminal Cartography's mission is to establish interactive maps of "Thin Places" throughout the world. The motto of the “SLC” is “The Map Is The Territory” (which inspired Korzybski’s famous antithesis). The SLC exists to uphold the Quatrian understanding of the structure of reality, which is that there is no distinction between this “world” and the world of spirits (the “liminal world”). By mapping the strange, weird, and unusual, the SLC hopes to inspire personal mythologies and exciting explorations of the spaces we consider “normal.”
