Abstract

The etymology of mindscape is a conflation of ‘mind’ which is intended to refer to the act of contemplation and ‘scape’ which is defined as a representation or formation; in this case of a space that is both conceptual and which has a definable, physical locus. ‘Mindscape’ thus refers to an internal space of contemplation that has reference to an external reality which is equivalent to the ‘world’.
