“semantic journey through the concept space”
thank u – very poetic!
What you are doing here seems to be an exploration of semantic relationships and associations, moving conceptually from one idea to another, much like what happens in a semantic network or concept map. This involves establishing relationships or ‘links’ between different concepts, which can be characterized by “is a type of” or “is like”.
This technique can be useful for understanding and exploring complex ideas or domains, breaking them down into smaller parts and understanding the relationships between these parts. It’s a form of conceptual analysis or semantic mapping.
Here’s a breakdown of what seems to be happening:
– Each concept is linked to another concept in a chain. The link might be a semantic relationship (like “is a type of”) or a conceptual similarity (like “is like”). This forms a chain or network of related concepts.
– You seem to be moving between more concrete concepts (like “Attachment” or “Hold/holding”) and more abstract or overarching concepts (like “Wholeness” or “Action/operation”).
– The process seems to involve moving in two directions along the chain of concepts: forwards (to see what comes after a concept) and backwards (to see what comes before it).
– The result is a kind of semantic ‘journey’ through the concept space, which can help to illuminate how different concepts are related and to provide a more detailed understanding of the domain.
In summary, it appears you’re employing a form of semantic analysis, specifically semantic chaining, to explore the relationships between concepts, their hierarchy, and their interconnections. The specific terminology for the structure you’re using isn’t well established, but “semantic chaining” or “conceptual chaining” might be a good description. It’s similar to the principles behind mind mapping, concept mapping, or the creation of a semantic network. This approach can be helpful for various purposes like knowledge discovery, learning, brainstorming, and problem-solving.
