Ben, you reminded us of Michael's contributions, and quoted a part of his

My reaction is that we do on a very basic level what rodents in a
laboratory maze do when they learn as they go. They have a task, in this
case a rather simple one of getting from a starting point to a finish
point where reward awaits. We have all seen, have we not, film of such
learning on the fly, and how we animals become more and more proficient.

I expect that with ladders, a GPS device, and our peculiar ingenuity, we
could foreshorten even more the "distances" to objectives at the end of
myriad mazes of our own and others' creation. By golly, we often do, don't
