I never could do other people’s “all-in-one” theories. I wanted to make my own and theirs just clutter up my thinking
So I’ve been learning in pieces, careful to avoid everything-theories. – and there’s a lot. They have a sway power that’s hard to avoid because they button things up nicely.. until you find the ‘fatal flaws’ – and there’s always at least one -something they’re glossing over and won’t mention.
I’m working with synonyms to identify what I think of is core concepts that seem to apply in a lot of areas under different names. A data compression but in a way that makes sense to my brain.
I kind of did this in 2013.. sat on it for a year, stuck it on Amazon in 2014 and on archive org a year or so later for free. Tried for a “data driven thesaurus” – and I found a pattern… but then I didn’t know what to do with it really. So I moved to other stuff.
But this time my direction is a more top-down thing rather than bottom up.
