Perfect This public “note to self” is a reminder to future me (for when I get around to it) that I will probably function best if I start with listing an output of a series of: 1 Every _ is a _ 2 Every _ is a _ 3 Every _ is a _ … until I’ve exhausted all of the parts of the systems I’m thinking of. Then, once that list is in place, go back and try to break it and/or justify it by building with it, testing as I go. It’s a fiction I’m building with but I’m hoping some value will come of it.

Perfect  This public “note to self” is a reminder to future me (for when I get around to it) that I will probably function best if I start with listing an output of a series of:
1 Every _ is a _
2 Every _ is a _
3 Every _ is a _
until I’ve exhausted all of the parts of the systems I’m thinking of.
Then, once that list is in place, go back and try to break it and/or justify it by building with it, testing as I go.
It’s a fiction I’m building with but I’m hoping some value will come of it.
Yes, that is my goal. It is broadness – maximal coverage – and I am depending on finding areas of inconsistency after I have exhausted my interest in enumerating as they will be my pointers for areas I need to change my approach about.
At that point, I will know how I will have to change “every … is a ….” and into what. I may even have to abandon it. But without starting, there is no progress.

Typically perhaps but I don’t think so in my situation. I’m also ok with being incorrect about that.
Rather, I see it as making a list of assertions.
“This is synonymous with that.”
You did so yourself just there.
This methodology is synonymous with anti-logic which is synonymous with anti-realism which is synonymous with magic.

Interestingly, what I am doing is also what you did there: using rooms as an meta analogy for many things.
My focus what I’m referring to as a “mixing area” or vestibule. It usually sits in-between an interior of a building and the outside of a building.
So, starting in the vestibule, your vestibule is high security.
My vestibule has paper thin walls – that is, the doors are unlocked and easy to pass through as if my space does not exist, such as an awning in front of a doorway.

Thank you and yes, I am.
 
Step one:
was discovering a pattern I think may be broadly applicable (that of a mixing area that is in-between two different spaces).
 
That took me eight years. It was staring me in the face all that time but I couldn’t see it.
 
It’s only when I tried to figure out “why do box and line diagrams work so well?” and realized it is rooms connected to rooms through mixing areas (associations, the lines) that I had a basic schema.
 
Step two:
Gathering synonyms broadly without culling yet. (You don’t cull while brainstorming)
 
Step three:
Find furthest synonyms.
 
Step four:
Justify their inclusion. If they need to be culled, figure out what is missing in your system as to why they do not fit.
 
Step five:
Mark boundaries of system. Abandon if impractical.

The sentence has unspoken parts then.
Every tiger is [a member of the class known as animals and is an example of] an animal.
transition space.
If the walls are an outline and the outline defines an object, an object can be considered a room and a door the means of communicating with the object, whether by seeing the object or holding the object or keeping it as a mental image, whatever a mental image may be.
(Connecting doors communicate between rooms).
