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.
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.
Basic assumption: Information is only in the form of text (and picture).
Information can be classified using two aspects
First) in ten topics:
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
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?
- 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
