Ways to think about islands. Pt. I. To think from above means to think with facts. Safe, while keeping your distance. Or maybe they are not facts after all? The line between what is real and what is fictional starts to blur out. The field of Island studies research is real. One may study its Master’s programs or read about the research in academic journals. Real are the maps, representing and picturing the World exactly as it is. But Island studies rarely analyze the Northern islands, even though most of them belong to Sweden, Norway, and Finland. And the “Tabula Rogeriana” atlas by al-Idrisi was created in 1154 by trusting the stories of travelers and salesmen arriving in Sicily. The atlas was 90% accurate and used for 400 years without corrections. The experience of reality is subjective yet only this way one might feel, grasp the truth as close as possible.
