huh?

Rob Brezny sez:

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “Successful representations of reality become
more important than the reality they represent,” writes W. Daniel Hillis at
The World Question Center (…com/ywth3). Examples: paper money
supersedes gold; a painting has more value than the landscape it depicts;
the status that an achievement brings begins to overshadow the
achievement. The coming days are an excellent time for you to
contemplate how this phenomenon might be in play in your life, and
whether it’s causing any distortions you need to correct. Start with this
meditation: Is there any way in which you’ve become so focused on the
map that you have neglected the territory?

I don’t get it. Can someone please explain this one to me. I like maps. They’re fun. What does he mean by territory, exactly? Of course a painting can have more value than the subject of it. Duh. That’s art. What’s the problem? Is this a hint to spend less time on facebook and internet forums and more time with my friends in da hood?
