Put a Radar Morph in the world and click on the arrows. It also shows
a zoomed out view of the world. It's in the Factory which you can get
by middle clicking on the world and choosing "Open Factory window". If
you use a laptop with touchpad scrolling you can two finger scroll
vertically and horizontally. A while back I posted a patch that let
you scroll the world with the arrow keys but I don't really use it

What would be good would be more world navigation tools. Being able to
bookmark sections, get a list, jump to them, etc.

Most of the documentation is in that papers. I posted some to the Self
Language Reddit:


And there's a bunch in the bibliography on the website:
