Comment on this note
Connections create new knowledge
People will remember you more if you elicit an emotional response
In modernity objects are becoming more simple and society is becoming more complex
Generalists create connections between high-degree nodes
How do slip boxes deal with facts?
How do you do reference notes for fiction?
How do you find the note that is on the tip of your mind?
How do you know which concepts in each discipline are most powerful?
If lit notes should be resummarizations, what about the juicy details or examples from references?
It’s expensive to experiment with brain-externalizing systems
Say ‘X is more important than Y’ instead of ‘X is important’
We are really bad at knowing the structure of our own minds and especially our future minds
What do you do when you just see a connection between two pieces of literature?
