Humans have navigational senses that we rarely access, I have come to believe. We can tell direction, sense magnetic North, and feel our way around on the earth using senses that are not named.
I love what the Polynesians did in sailing open canoes across thousands of miles. There is something about the navigators looking at the waves, watching birds, tasting the ocean, that fascinates me. Link to modern wayfinding, the Polynesian Voyaging Society.
