Kenneth Udut outlining a possible process:
To shrink a 2 dimensional area while minimizing loss of information (expect some)…
… you can:
1) identify the salient categories.
A: “a concept is a theory of a category” so
B:for each category, identify a theory behind a category to be sure you are capturing the proper concept. Provide some justification for why this concept should be viewed as a salient concept.
2) for each category, create a layer and place the category on it.
3) for each category on its layer, shrink the 2 dimensional area in area.
4) stack the layers.
5) provide reassembly instructions.
You now have a 4D object representing your static 2D map.
It is 3D (2D layers each with its own area and unique Information and category-concept-theory) and Time.
It takes time to reassemble the original image.
2D to 4D to 2D
