ok, it sounds we’re in the same area; linking together cognitive science, computation, physics, philosophy – and working towards a correct understanding of such matters using reasoning. What fascinated me in the exercise I was doing here is that i put together words I’d written last year as I was working towards an ontology I thought was reasonable and using several different AI classifiers (textrazor and also one used to classify library books according to the Dewey Decimal System based on learned text from german and English papers) to see what “they thought” I was writing about as topics. And by making a few simple shifts from field-words such as “set of” (mathematics), “theory of” (cognitive science), “category” (mathematics (category theory)), “class” (philosophy, computer science), while retaining meaning, the classifications of topic easily shifted between these different fields. And that informed me that yes, I was thinking of all of those subject areas and they are all linked together.

I do not trust my reasoning skills, which is why I check with whatever resources I have at hand; I can easily fall in love with one way of looking at things without realizing I don’t have other important things that are just outside of my light cone that would make what I’m working on work even better; and yet I also ‘do’ trust them as it’s my primary guidance
