Love that image of depth/breadth first and your description. Answer is slimemold / rubber band / gravity inspired (mine anyway) but I still find myself doing the one-dimension (pencil) -on-two-dimensional-field (paper) thing more than I’d like anyway.

This is me four years ago at the beginning of what I called “The Project”. It was originally just a note-to-self but I stuck it on youtube to keep myself honest. Replace where I say “websites” with knowledge acquisition and that’s what I was getting at but at that moment, I was thinking of it in terms of website traversal linked with a depth/breadth search.
 
In the intervening four years I learned a lot this way – and even a few conclusions I can stand on firmly (which for me is odd because normally I don’t hold fast to firm conclusions as I’m “quick to be skeptical, slow to believe”.
  Analogies – [or metaphors in a more general sense] – they seem to cover so much territory for me. For a while I was using > . < as my symbol for it, as I couldn’t get the two points to overlap and have the dot in the middle… other times it could be a mixing of colors in a Venn diagram kind of way.

Comparator lay at the center, pulling from all around from within and without itself, front to back, and knitting together reality as it goes. It creates yet doesn’t create, understands yet is understanding yet can’t understand. It’s verbing.
