This sort of error prompted me to coin the phrase, "The map is not the territory."

Wrong!

If you actually go and check "Science and Sanity", you'll find it is "A map is not the territory".  Putting it the other way means  there is only one real distinct map because of the way "The" is used, and is therefore against the way/ tenets/ suggestions/ advice of General Semantics.  

(I read Science and sanity at uni.  It was quite helpful, although it could be boiled down into something maybe 50 pages long)
