Ok Zee Zee : Now I can work on your question. I needed context: (“Gender has biological ties” comes from Richard Green, sexologist, who wrote in 2002 at 66 yrs old a compilation of support from various directions, conflating social gender and biological sex BUT not irresponsibly, as he is not saying “It’s all DNA” or “it’s al social”. Post-humanism/post-gender that George Dvorsky and James Hughes write about in 2008 is a view from a political activist perspective in a “We need a discussion now”. The main inspiration for THEIR piece is tracable to Donna Haraway’s “Cyborg Manifesto” (1983-1985) who suggested that understanding chimerism through a metaphor of cyborgs is useful in ascertaining the future roles of being in a society with flexible expression of selfhoods.) Zee writes: “You Genetically Germ-line Engineer the Human Species with the End-Goal of Post-male-female, Post-gendered-brain goals. The World is going to have to have a serious discussion on why Technologies are being used for this, in this fashion, with this approach.” If it is with an eye to individual choice, having the technology freely available with an option for default settings of “whatever” for those who don’t want to partake, I’m 100% fine with it. If it is applied in an authoritarian or capitalist way, that might be a problem as one mandates and the other restricts.

Research Methodology. [I cleaned it up for better or worse] From: Farsi, M., Erkoyuncu, J. A., Steenstra, D., & Roy, R. (2019). A Modular Hybrid Simulation Framework for Complex Manufacturing System Design. Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory. I like this model. It looks standard yet it seems to capture all of the parts of doing good research, whether for aircraft engineering or your own. [They are all from “Through-life Engineering Services Centre, School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing, Cranfield University, Cranfield,”]

If a book is seen as a 2D Image (all pages at once, single side), I’ll see how much I can compress it using my 4D model “layers over time” notion. Facing my demon of structured writing, I’m trying to read _The Craft of Research, Fourth Edition (Chicago Guides to Writing, Editing, and Publishing), 4th Edition_ Before right now, I was starting to read it slowly, closely, carefully, allowing myself to be mostly ignorant of what was coming next. I could work with what it TOLD ME was coming next and I knew the overall TOPIC, so I had some extra-dimensional information, but I was trying to minimize its influence. This is much like watching a movie for the first time, or hearing a storyteller, or allowing a teacher FULL control of how information comes to you. But this was giving me a headache. I’m used to speed reading, devouring books quickly and this went against all that. As I no longer want a headache, I’m going to apply my methodology, which I think is already common enough (I’m using available sources), I just put it into my own words from consolidations of my own thinkings about it: Here is the process I’ll try to follow: —– 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. —– I’ll use the Comments area below to capture layers and to of course provide discussion area as that’s its normal function. :) https://www.amazon.com/Research-Chicago-Writing-Editing-Publishing/dp/022623973X/ref=sr_1_1?hvadid=241623782352&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9012266&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t1&hvqmt=e&hvrand=16142617440805570408&hvtargid=kwd-34720038707&keywords=craft+of+research+4th+edition&qid=1554777260&s=books&sr=1-1
