"A cognitive map of space is a combination of the rules of geometry as well as knowledge about the physical world. [...] This knowledge is acquired in childhood and continually modified in our experience as adults, we are not conscious of its existence. When sensing a spatial environment, an individual builds a cognitive map of space using a combination of sensory information and experiences accumulated over a lifetime. [The map] is subjective and personalized -- an active and synthetic creation -- rather than a passive reaction to stimuli."

The authors refer to the creation of a cognitive map within the player's mind used as an aid to navigation and formed through a learning experience. This is called a

Presents two forms of user-system interaction in VR:
navigation and manipulation. The first allows for exploration of the world including looking around and moving through while the second allows for "a meaningful change" in the world.

There are two ways to spatially navigate interactive texts: the maze is a conditional progression towards one outcome whereas the rhizome proposes many possible outcomes. Murray suggests that a labrynth "as a participatory narrative form would seem to lie somewhere between the two, in stories that are goal driven enough to guide narrative but open-ended enough to allow free navigation."
