Animals use Earth’s magnetic field for orientation. Some animals, like sea turtles and salmon, have the ability to sense the Earth’s magnetic field and can use this sense for navigation.
In our lives we always strive for control. Getting lost can be a humbling opportunity to re-set your course of action. To do so, opt for the unbeaten path, the unknown, the risky way. You might not end up where you wanted to - but you'll arrive at the exact right place at the right time.
»Every orientation presupposes a disorientation«
Hans Magnus Enzensberger - German author and poet
