BOUNDLESS: Tracing Land and Dream in a New Northwest Passage, by Kathleen Winter
"Canada had begun to set much store on publicizing an invigorated and expensive search for the Franklin wrecks, while quietly using the same search technology to pursue soundings of the Arctic seafloor for data needed by oil consortiums, mineral concerns, and military interests.
Maslow's hierarchy of needs:
"tracing that one warm line...a delicate, human endeavour, full of possible wrong turnings and accident...so much depended on patience and forgiveness: with these it was easier to bear desolation and loneliness on any voyage"
Gerald Squires: artist, Newfoundland "had a vision that led him to create his great sculpture of Beothuk woman Shanawdithit"
Junko Momose: Tokyo author, "A Folklore Intertwined by Loons and Humans: The Story of a Lost Symbiosis" (1995); "Wintering Loons and Japanese Fishermen" (1997) "It was a scientific paper, yet also a document of dreams, old stories, and imagination" KW
Metamemory: in psychology means an individual's knowledge about whether or not they would remember something if they concentrated on recalling it
Meta Incognita: the notion of beyond, beyond known limits
cryosphere: "one of those rare scientific words that manage to hold a profoundly human and sacred resonance. From the Greek cryos, meaning cold, frost, or ice, and sphaira, meaning globe or ball...'Cry, O sphere - weep, dear globe; lament, people, if ground this sacred should go unheard...Cry, O sphere, if I should walk in the North and perceive only earth's mineral body and not her sacred mind...'
ALL LAND IS SACRED
