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
