Sometimes, I look up to the heavens, perform an ancient religious ceremony with sextant and slide rule and get the impression I know where I am or even, on a really clear, crystal and holy dawn, who I am. Actually, my latest lunar was so far out that I was unclearly in a surreal place and time. More Dali than Monet! I was a lost soul. My GPS found me, but could not tell me who I am.My slide rule and Brown-Nassau said " your're the one who made me!"
Lots of art, philosophy and poetry in cel nav I think. Same with medicine. Can the formulae behind the Almanac predict when the moon will wax lyrical? Can the MRI scan tell me why I feel joy when it does?
