Views from markers to buildings.
Markers and directional pointers.
System that indicates movement (alignments under Forester)
Openings, accesses, restrictions, porosity.
Rhizome examples: lateral spreading plants like bamboo, growth perpendicular to gravity, mycelium, wasp and orchid, oral history, the underground railroad, social media, maps, highway systems
