The point about language creating a spatial gestalt makes me wonder if this is related to the danger of having a cell phone conversation while driving. Recent research shows the problem is as much the distraction of the conversation as fumbling with the device. Perhaps our brains have difficulty navigating both a real and a linguistic landscape at the same time.
