Editor's Notes:

The red, blue and yellow diagram in the creative arts section, above right, represents the building itself as a 3-dimensioanl text book.

Bruce Jilk refers to the meandering dashed line in the lower section as a "Septa." This usage is taken from the chambered Nautilus sea shell - the chamber separations are referred to as septa. The Nautilus inhabits the shell, but the shell is not actually a living part of the organism -- the organism secretes the shell and chambers as it grows. In a similar way, the Septa shown above is arranged by learners as the learning organism grows. The solid portions of the line represent solid surfaces -- a corrugated partition; the white portions of the line are open to walk through, but connected above as in doorway.
