1b4 - Idea Emergence - Part 1

Last updated Aug 15, 2023

Atlas/Maps/LYT 10 MOC

In the past, to manage our files, we had a rigid folder-only system. As files became faster, we started calling them notes. Now, instead of mainly relying on folders, many of us rely more on links. That’s because the rigid folder-only system we all grew up with is stunting our ability to deftly, to masterfully, work with our knowledge. Whereas, link-based notes allow us to do just that.

So how can we become more masterful at using links? It starts with understanding what is happening beneath the surface.

As we use links in our notes, interesting patterns start to form.

These patterns follow “systems theory 🧩”.

So before we jump too deeply into "Cards/Idea Emergence" we must define the terms of Systems Thinking.

Yes I know, there is more to it than that, but that’s all the primer we need to understand Cards/Idea Emergence.

PS: Throughout this unit, we will balance “theory” with “practice”. Getting more reps and tacking back and forth many times—theory-practice-theory-practicelearn-do-learn-do—will allow us to become skilled in this form of thinking we call “Fluid Thinking”.
