It’s scattered. I have it all archived at http://icopiedyou.com – my searchable brain – but collating is precisely what I have trouble with. But now I realize that I’m in the process of creating my own ontology to which theories (and finally theory) is superimposed and entangled.

I was raised with Dewey Decimal (library classification) so I know it by heart.

So in 2015, I took all of my collected writings up to that point and ran them all through an AI topic classifier for librarians. With some additional calculations for “confidence of specificity”, my top for by far were:

May 9, 2015
DDC
115 Time
120 Epistemology, causation & humankind
122 Causation
401 Philosophy & theory

So if a random librarian saw my pages and HAD to sort them into books, they (writing output of my brain online) would likely fit inside of books found in a library in these areas.

115 is uncommon.
120 has some titles, such as these:

122 is a specific within 120.

And 401 is “Philosophy and theory of”… well here:

401
Philosophy and theory Including interdisciplinary works on pragmatics [formerly 306.44], international languages; universal languages; general discussions of international languages,
e.g., diplomatic languages, lingua francas; semantics, languages for special purposes; lexicology, interdisciplinary works on terminology; language acquisition, speech perception; psycholinguistics

It was eye opening, not just that these were the major facets of knowledge that I “talk like / sound like”, but even more fascinating were all of the subject classifications I *didn’t* fall into. I was missing Philosophy. Logic. Political science and others.

So, that started me on a quest to fill in my gaps.

I joined Philosophy groups. Learned more about political science. Started focus on logics that I didn’t know of.

If I can remember how I did it, I _should_ run my writings from 2015-2019 through it and find out if I start representing some of those previously missing topics.
