July was a bad month. My mother died on July 7, and I was involved with arranging her funeral.
I have also become increasingly frustrated with history and with my lack of progress in recent events, cultural areas, and the scientific areas of the knowledge Base. For the past few days decided to follow my instincts and start working on the other end, with science.
I have found that for motivational purposes, it’s often easier to work from the top down, which suggests development of biohistory. There are, practically speaking, four major divisions, the Precambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic eons. Of these, the Cenozoic is the most recent and easiest to study, and this is at the forefront of my investigation. Ecology is also prominent in biology, and I am working on subdivisions of systematics and organism biology.
I am treating geological history separately but in parallel with biological history. Biological history focuses on communities, biological evolution, animals, plants, and so forth, while geological history focuses on oceans, continents, climate, landforms, rocks and minerals, and so forth. These are closely tied and connected, but often require different approaches. Physical geography is now subdividied, and I am working on atmospheric and hydrospheric science.
I also am working on divisions of astronomy and chemistry, so far a little bit more slowly than biology and earth science.
