Maps, schmaps! How to map an 11 dimensional universe on a 2-d paper?? (roll up the extra dimensions and glue them along the edge-ed.). We in the 114th Tramfalmagorian Saucer Squadron do something analogous to defecation upon your Earthling maps! (Allowing for plumbing difference and metaphorical construction).
We stick with traditional corn circle direction indicators. Good enough for my great-pseudo-ancestor, good enough for Zog!

Don't you mean Tralfamadorian? Or am I looking for a Vonnegut reference where none exists?

Who said maps were only in 2D? Or just on paper?

Disgusting person Kilgore Trout tell many lies about Tralfalmagadore, including name- which undergo mutation dependent on case, position relative to verb phrase and pseudo gender of speaker.
Also remote channeler been up thirty hours and head not on straight.
-cool star chart though.
