Vacation 2

I was on the peak this afternoon. now I’m on my way back down. I should be back home in two weeks.

On the way, I have more free time than I thought. But when I reach home, I have less. So I’ll try to make a schedule for working on atlas of knowledge.

Imagine a KnowledgeAtlas in which every single concept from the above link is incorporated.

Vacation

Time for it. I might be away for a while, but I’ll try to check things in two weeks. And you’ll receive some good news in 30 days if I make it.

For the moment, Bye.

How to make a concept map

  1. A comprehensive compact general book is chosen
  2. It is then studied, analyzed, outlined, and summarized (see the style section below)
  3. A concept map is made.
  4. It’s history is studied to create storylines.
  5. The result is simplified and proposed to a number of critics. (closed discussion)
  6. Any change demanded by the critic is made until he is satisfied.
  7. All the versions are compound and an FAQ is written.
  8. The compound version plus all other versions and an FAQ is published, and The mapper answers the rest of the questions(open discussion.) 
  9. (NEW) The final version is uploaded to Knowledgeatlas.coop :-)

Here’s Jason Arnold's short, beautiful, informative graphic novel about Knowledge Atlas. Enjoy!

Map of Sciencs

Basic assumption: Information is only in the form of text (and picture).

Information can be classified using two aspects

First) in ten topics:

  1. Informatics
  2. Epistemology
  3. Mathematics
  4. Existencology
  5. Physics
  6. Chemistry
  7. Cosmology
  8. Biology
  9. Psychology
  10. Sociology

Second) in four fields

  • Theory: General fields
  • Ideas: Research fields
  • Branches: Subfields
  • Technology: Applied fields

Thus, Information has 10*4=40 categories.

  • Example of subfields:
  • Informatics - Literature
  • Physics      - Mechanics
  • Cosmology  - Astronomy, Meteorology, Geography, Geology
  • Sociology   - Religious, Politics & Economic Systems

Each subfield has more subfields. Example:

  • Mechanics  - of particle, of rigid subject, of solid, of fluids
  • Mechanics  - Statics, Kinematics, Kinetics
  • Religion      - Beliefs, Ethics, Traditions

History

Have you ever wanted to know everything? or everything human have discovered? Have you ever wished to have a book about everything? seems impossible?

have you once wished you could read a whole encyclopedia? What about a mini-encyclopedia? a teen encyclopedia? a kids encyclopedia? I did so, When I first saw one. It was full of pictures. with a few carefully written text.

What was the problem? alphabetical order of course. But if you were to write a book about everything, how would you arrange the contents?

  • Alphabet?
  • Here is wikipedia’s order. It classifies all the general human knowledge into four topics. the main flaw is the unclear order of studying those 12 topics.
  • I have an even better idea: I call it the Map of Knowledge. I’ve been working on it for ten years.
  • (NEW) Mark D’Acry has an even better idea: You can halp making atlas of knowledge. It’s easy. Just visit http://Knowledgeatlas.coop

The above link shows the correct order of teaching mechanics of solids and writing a book about it. It can be used as a table of contents.

History

Timoshenko Wrote a really practical book on mechanics of solids. But not a really organized one! the other book writers after him, did little to improve the order. Now the stress related concepts are arranged in the right order.

Progress

the Strain Related concepts are yet to be rearranged.
