More nursing

The 20th century is now being connected to details of physics. The 19th century is being connected to elements of science. The 18th century is now being connected to elements of culture and anthropology. This is now one of the limiting factors.

Within sociology, Western civilization is being connected to elements of culture. Asiatic peoples are comparatively overdeveloped and I am waiting for the 18th century and government to catch up. Social mechanics is being connected to personal studies and science.

Religion is being connected to chemistry and physics. Government is being connected to elements of culture and anthropology and is one of the limiting factors.

So far, the development has been highly skeletal and rather bare of commentary. Now that basic elements of science have been sufficiently connected to history, I now feel free to introduce slightly more commentary to elements of physics and have begun with mechanics, thermodynamics, and electromagnetism. As I progress, expect to have more content in physics.

Linearization

Since the knowledge base is structured primarily as a tree and it is much too large to visit all the elements, deciding what to work on has been a major problem. It is all too easy to select one area and overdevelop it at the expense of other related ones. I can’t treat all branches equally, since some of them are clearly more significant than others. Since I can only work on one at a time, I need some way to decide which is the most important to work on. As higher level categories are fully connected, they will be removed from the head of the list and attention will be focused on their subdivisions, Each active topic has a priority number. which will indicate how much attention I give to it first. This also provides me a more visible measure of my progress.

At present, the 20th century is fairly underdeveloped and is the most active. I am now connecting this to the sciences. The 19th century is also underdeveloped and is being connected to elements of anthropology. The topic of communities is now connected all the way down to the sciences. Social mechanics is being connected to psychology and the human body. In the new linearization scheme, this should come after the 19th century, so development will be paused while the 19th century catches up. Religion is also being connected to the human body and the sciences.

More nursing

History in general, Modern history, classical and medieval history, and antiquity are all now well connected to science, so I can rest those. Prehistory and the future still need connections to science. The 20th century, the early 21st century, late 2010s, 2020, the first quarter 2020, and February 2020 can be developed.

Sociology in general and Peoples of the world are now connected to science. The divisions of Western Civilization, Asiatic peoples, African peoples, and American Indian peoples need to be better developed. Communities in general are almost fully connected to science. The divisions of Western cities, Asian cities, African cities, and American Indian cites are being connected, mostly to institutions. Social mechanics still needs connections to anthropology.

Religion is begin connected to personal studies and science. Government still needs connections. Economics and education are held back by the need to develop communities and social mechanics.

Nursing the dream

Still working the knowledge base. For history in general, I have begun connecting specific biography pages, and filling in more details of science. I have modern history connected to details of science, and will be filling in some gaps. The 20th century is being connected to elements of culture and anthropology, The early 21st century is being connected to institutions. I have the raw material for a better summary of events in the largest nations, but I don’t quite feel ready to try to summarize these. The late 20th century needs to have more details of nations connected. For the 19th century, I am making connections to institutions and culture. Classical and medieval history is being connected to elements of science. The future is being connected to elements of anthropology in order to clear the way for development of the 20th century. Peoples of the world are being connected to details of science. Western civiliation is being connected to institutions. Asiatic peoples and African peoples are not far behind. Communities are being connected to elements of anthropology. Social mechanics are a little further behind in connecting to culture and anthropology. Religion is being connected to culture and anthropology, and government to other social institutions. Culture, anthropology, and personal studies have been well connected to other divisions. At a finer level, I an adding to the content of science.

Although there are reasons to work form the top (history) down, where are also reasons to work from the bottom (science) up.. I have been trying to “Flatten” the connections so that I can go either direction and meet in the middle, where there are more practical applications. For now, I;m trying to nurse the project along, and identify which sections most urgently need attention.

I’ve set aside the Kerbal Space Program for a while, and such chronicals as I write are going on the Kerbak Space Program web site.
