The Shining: Hedge maze map trance

The hedge maze map,
hypnotizes Jack and he has a clairvoyant vision of the present and future.  Does he see Wendy and Danny make their way to the maze’s center?  Or worse, does he see a violent future?

The powers of the Overlook’s hedge maze map isn’t reserved for Jack.  He isn’t the first lost into its supernatural pattern.  Earlier in the film, while Jack phones Wendy, there is a quiet man positioned in the background between Ullman and Watson.  The man is obviously restless.  Perhaps confused.  Not quite physically or emotionally paralyzed, is he trying to step away and escape?  Or is he trying to get a closer look into the maze?  What caught his eye?
