A visitor brought me his wrinkled garden map to ask how to get to 16. Not having much noticed the numbering other than to look up the titles of the galleries, I was perplexed. We were standing at the Exploration Center, number 15. To get to Earth Cycles, number 16, the visitor would have to take his family through 17, Living Cycles.
But what about the "chronkillogical order", he wondered. It's okay. You don't have to follow the numbers in order.
So much for treasure maps and dance steps and that direction drilled into our heads by elementary school teachers.
