I like Dewey Decimal because I memorized the ‘gist’ of it as a kid and always lamented that it was copyrighted and hard to get computerized. But ChatGPT4 knows the DDC and works fine with it, allowing me to ask it to categorize things in it, in this case ASPECTS OF HUMAN EXPERIENCE with dimensions. I hope to correlate other information I have in DDC with this and make crucial connections that were eluding me. I can see it already and can compare it to work I did 5-8 years ago.
