- I mainly cook food at home, and try to eat a whole foods diet. I got very tired of constantly thinking about what I was going to eat, which recipes to try, what ingredients I had or needed to get at the store, what I could cook from what I already had, etc.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- I also felt like recipes are somehow really hard to read and follow. I wanted a system for cooking a small set of really good, healthy meals, where I could improve my cooking by focusing on certain techniques. Cooking should feel easier.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- I developed a core set of ingredients ("the Kitchen Standard") from which I can cook many meals that are overall "worth it." I commit to always keeping these in stock at home. So when I am nearing running out, I always add it to my running grocery list. Then I found a bunch of recipes that I can cook primarily from this set of standard ingredients.

- I've listened to John Fahey's "Legend of Blind Joe Death" album probably like 1000 times. I started listening to that album in 2010 or so, and it's probably been my most frequently played album the whole time since. I apparently don't actually need that much variety (in music, media, food...) and tend to listen to or watch the same things repeatedly. I think this is partly possible because this album has no words, and because something about it resonates with me emotionally. Now the first couple notes of the starting song is enough to pique that resonance.

- If #Roam ever lets you subscribe to other peoples' block updates, I'd like to be able to subscribe to musicians' different versions of songs as they practice and improve over time.

- One of the nice things about Roam's lack of metaphor for how data is organized is that you can layer on your own metaphors.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- [[Hyperfine Village]] is something like a "thinking as world-building" (or even "thinking as mundane, everyday activity") metaphor that uses imagined locations and objects within a small town (e.g. [[The Office]], [[The Bank]], [[The Gardens]], [[The Lab]]) to organize all my digital resources, including my ideas, tasks, notes, references, and projects.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- This metaphor affords some sorts of thinking that are also afforded by the real world.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- **Resources in Context**: The metaphor allows me to rely on common cultural meanings to find relevant resources, for example of [[The Bank]] as a place where I'd find money-related resources.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- **Activities in Context**: The metaphor allows me to think of myself as being in a context, oriented toward a specific sort of task. For example, when I'm in [[The Lab]] I am __tinkering with things__; when [[The Gardens]] I am __tending to ideas__. Anecdotally, the idea of "being in a certain type of place" seems to help me focus doing the sort of thing that's done in that place.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- **Workflow as Pathway**: Every day I start at [[The Cabin]], visit [[The Planetarium]], and then decide whether I want to go into town to take care of some things (at [[The Office]] or [[The Bank]], for example) or go do some more enjoyable work in [[The Gardens]] or at [[The Lab]]. I don't have a "workflow" document anymore, or a checklist. I have an imagined stroll.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- One of the things I've learned from academic educational research is an approach to thinking more clearly about design, theory, and measurement. Or: how technologies we design support some human activity (thinking, goal-setting, play, etc), how we understand/theorize that activity, and how we know whether we're right, and whether our designs are working.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- My current belief is that the most powerful use of Roam, as an external tool for thought, is that it invites you to **interrogate your own ideas**. This will lead to better ideas. (When it gets fully socially-networked, then *other* people can interrogate your ideas, too. I think how well this plays out in the long run might depend a lot on the epistemic culture set up by early adopters.)

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- Tools for thought are the __things that make us smart__ (Norman view). External technologies (like language, calculus, diagrams) allow new thoughts (through the internalization of social systems of meaning, Vygotsky view). At the same time, new media for thought opens up not just new thoughts, but new __ways__ of "thinking with thoughts".

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- [[S: An epistemic environment should make use of meaningful artifacts]] Consider the familiarity of the workbench. Relationship to and knowing your ideas. The familiarity of tools. Memories and motivational power evoked by the context of things you've made. How objects are __meaningful__. They effortlessly bring with them rich memories, mindsets, prior experiences, motivations. They afford new ways of perceiving the world, which are intrinsically related to new opportunities for action.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- [[s: satisfaction of fixing ideas]] People who I knew in Math wanted to start bakeries. People in Physics want to go into TV repair. I am in social science and want to just __program__. Like [[(Crawford, 2010: Shop Class as Soulcraft)]], I want the satisfaction of having fixed something, to have that concrete sort of knowledge that things are better now than they were when you started.

- Network graphs and the idea of "networked knowledge" are sort of inherently un-spatial, at least in that the particular x,y position of any node isn't necessarily meaningful. But human thought is spatial. Both in that it is highly entwined with the material context in which it is taking place, including the use of external representations for thought, uses spatio-graphical imagery and manipulations on it for thinking, is rooted in embodied imagery. People do epistemic actions on external representations as part of situated cognition.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- If we're overly focused on the semantic content/capabilities of tools for thought, we're ignoring that thought is always situated in this broader work in the world, motivational context and values and intuitions. Tools are often viewed as context-free, in that sense-- that they should be portable, adaptable, configurable for a variety of purposes. I wonder whether, in abstracting data structure out of peoples' cognitive work, we've thrown the baby out with the bath water, and are missing opportunities to really enhance it. Maybe a really effective tool for thought would help people sustain their vision of the future, somehow evoke their deeply-held values and motivations for effecting change in the world and *then* help them build relevant knowledge. What would that work environment look like?

- Current approach: I open major claims in the sidebar, search through the text/links within them, and add __block references__ back to the main paper page. I'm experimenting currently with having *as little as possible* original text on the main project pages.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- Be real with yourself here. If you notice you have "visions" like "losing 10 pounds" it'll take some introspection to decide whether this is because, in the future you want, you are very healthy, or because you want to look good. Either are fine, just be aware of your motives and then write *those* down instead, until you get to something that's motivating __on its own__, with no other underlying reason.

- Under each vision, think: what am I pretty sure I have to __maintain__ in order to achieve this vision?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- E.g. to feel alert, I'm pretty certain at this point in my life that I need to follow a low-carb diet and exercise at least 4 times a week. These just seem to be an empirical fact. To produce high-quality work, I'm becoming pretty certain that I need to write every day. These are "activities to maintain." I create notes for these prefaced with "A:".

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- Under each vision, think: what are concrete things I could do that would move me toward that vision?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- These are like "projects." These are things that can be completed, or not, and that you could set a deadline for, etc. But their core feature is that they should be direct next steps in moving toward this vision you set out for.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- Projects should be something you have complete control over. Not "publish paper" but "submit paper"

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- Good projects/goals are not visions in disguise. Ex: "I want to lose 10 pounds" is not actually a good health goal. Why lose 10 pounds? Because you want to feel good? Because you want to look different? Then make a vision "look like a waif" or whatever, and ask what you need to do to maintain your waifiness and make commitments toward it and figure out goals that would make you better at doing it. "Lose 10 pounds" is a dumb goal because it obscures why you're doing it, how to do it or how to get better at doing it.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- I'm actually considering entirely throwing out the traditional concept of "goals" and to think only in terms of "processes" or "activities." For example, say that what I want is to feel good and healthy. I used to create goals like "run a marathon" under this broad category of health goals. But what's the relationship between running a marathon, and feeling healthy? It's not at all direct. "Run everyday" is directly, causally related to feeling good and maintaining overall health.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- I can't think of the right metaphor for this. It's like "treating the symptom and not the underlying disease." You imagine that if you were a very healthy and alert person you'd be the sort of person who also ran marathons, so you create a goal to run a marathon rather than to become healthy and alert by some actual causally-related process.

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- Say that I already had a committment/resolution to "write every day." If I do that, I am likely moving toward a goal of publishing something. So why create a goal of "Publish X thing" instead of modifying the maintenance activity to be "write toward publication every day"?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- Maybe "projects" and "goals" aren't really good motivators or even milestones, but are better thought of as an external process-evaluating framework. Like, here are the metrics by which I'll evaluate my progress: did I publish X thing?

   edit   deselect   + to AI

 

- Or maybe the metaphor is something like navigating a ship: the maintenance activities are like rowing, and the "projects" together constitute a direction to steer toward (in that way they're kind of just nearer-sighted visions.)

Semantic Variability Score
— modulates diversity of the discourse network  how it works?
The score is calculated based on how modular the structure of the graph is (> 0.4 means the clusters are distinct and separate from one another = multiple perspectives). It also takes into account how the most influential nodes are dispersed among those clusters (higher % = lower concentration of power in a particular cluster).
Actionable Insight:

N/A

We distinguish 4 states of variability in your discourse. We recommend that a well-formed discourse should go through every stage during its evolution (in several iterations).

  1 - (bottom left quadrant) — biased — low variability, low diversity, one central idea (genesis and introduction stage).
  2 - (top right) - focused - medium variability and diversity, several concepts form a cluster (coherent communication stage).
  3 - (bottom right) - diversified — there are several distinct clusters of main ideas present in text, which interact on the global level but maintain specificity (optimization and reflection stage).
  4 - (left top) — dispersed — very high variability — there are disjointed bits and pieces of unrelated ideas, which can be used to construct new ideas (creative reformulation stage).

Shows to what extent you explored all the different states of the graph, from uniform and regular to fractal and complex. Read more in the cognitive variability help article.

You can increase the score by adding content into the graph (your own and AI-generated), as well as removing the nodes from the graph to reveal latent topics and hidden patterns.

The topical clusters are comprised of the nodes (words) that tend to co-occur together in the same context (next to each other).

We use a combination of clustering and graph community detection algorithm (Blondel et al based on Louvain) to identify the groups of nodes are more densely connected together than with the rest of the network. They are aligned closer to each other on the graph using the Force Atlas algorithm (Jacomy et al) and are given a distinct color.

We use the Jenks elbow cutoff algorithm to select the top prominent nodes that have significantly higher influence than the rest.

Click the Reveal Non-obvious button to remove the most influential words (or the ones you select) from the graph, to see what terms are hiding behind them.

The most influential nodes are either the ones with the highest betweenness centrality — appearing most often on the shortest path between any two randomly chosen nodes (i.e. linking the different distinct communities) — or the ones with the highest degree.
Network Structure:
N/A
?
The network structure indicates the level of its diversity. It is based on the modularity measure (>0.4 for medium, >0.65 for high modularity, measured with Louvain (Blondel et al 2008) community detection algorithm) in combination with the measure of influence distribution (the entropy of the top nodes' distribution among the top clusters), as well as the the percentage of nodes in the top community.

AI: Bridge the Gap   AI: Article Outline
 
A structural gap shows the two distinct communities (clusters of words) in this graph that are important, but not yet connected. That's where the new potential and innovative ideas may reside.

This measure is based on a combination of the graph's connectivity and community structure, selecting the groups of nodes that would either make the graph more connected if it's too dispersed or that would help maintain diversity if it's too connected.

Latent Topical Connectors
(less visible terms that link important topics):

AI: Select & Generate Content
These are the latent brokers between the topics: the nodes that have an unusually high rate of influence (betweenness centrality) to their freqency — meaning they may appear not as often as the most influential nodes but they are important narrative shifting points.

These are usually brokers between different clusters / communities of nodes, playing not easily noticed and yet important role in this network, like the "grey cardinals" of sorts.

LDA stands for Latent Dirichlet Allocation — it is a topic modelling algorithm based on calculating the maximum probability of the terms' co-occurrence in a particular text or a corpus.

We provide this data for you to be able to estimate the precision of the default InfraNodus topic modeling method based on text network analysis.

We provide LDA stats for comparison purposes only. It works with English-language texts at the moment. More languages are coming soon, subscribe @noduslabs to be informed.

Sentiment Analysis


positive: | negative: | neutral:
reset filter    ?  

We analyze the sentiment of each statement to see whether it's positive, negative, or neutral. You can filter the statements by sentiment (clicking above) and see what kind of topics correlate with every mood.

The approach is based on AFINN and Emoji Sentiment Ranking

 
Use the Bert AI model for English, Dutch, German, French, Spanish and Italian to get more precise results (slower). Standard model is faster, works for English only, is less precise, and is based on a fixed AFINN dictionary.

The higher is the network's structure diversity and the higher is the alpha in the influence propagation score, the higher is its mind-viral immunity — that is, such network will be more resilient and adaptive than a less diverse one.

In case of a discourse network, high mind-viral immunity means that the text proposes multiple points of view and propagates its influence using both highly influential concepts and smaller, secondary topics.
The higher is the diversity, the more distinct communities (topics) there are in this network, the more likely it will be pluralist.
The network structure indicates the level of its diversity. It is based on the modularity measure (>0.4 for medium, >0.65 for high modularity, measured with Louvain (Blondel et al 2008) community detection algorithm) in combination with the measure of influence distribution (the entropy of the top nodes' distribution among the top clusters), as well as the the percentage of nodes in the top community.

Narrative Influence Propagation:
  ?
The chart above shows how influence propagates through the network. X-axis: lemma to lemma step (narrative chronology). Y-axis: change of influence.

The more even and rhythmical this propagation is, the stronger is the central idea or agenda (see alpha exponent below ~ 0.5 or less).

The more variability can be seen in the propagation profile, the less is the reliance on the main concepts (agenda), the stronger is the role of secondary topical clusters in the narrative.
propagation dynamics: | alpha exponent: (based on Detrended Fluctuation Analysis of influence) ?   show the chart
We plot the narrative as a time series of influence (using the words' betweenness score). We then apply detrended fluctuation analysis to identify fractality of this time series, plotting the log2 scales (x) to the log2 of accumulated fluctuations (y). If the resulting loglog relation can be approximated on a linear polyfit, there may be a power-law relation in how the influence propagates in this narrative over time (e.g. most of the time non-influential words, occasionally words with a high influence).

Using the alpha exponent of the fit (which is closely related to Hurst exponent)), we can better understand the nature of this relation: uniform (pulsating | alpha <= 0.65), variable (stationary, has long-term correlations | 0.65 < alpha <= 0.85), fractal (adaptive | 0.85 < alpha < 1.15), and complex (non-stationary | alpha >= 1.15).

For maximal diversity, adaptivity, and plurality, the narrative should be close to "fractal" (near-critical state). For fiction, essays, and some forms of poetry — "uniform". Informative texts will often have "variable + stationary" score. The "complex" state is an indicator that the text is always shifting its state.

Degree Distribution:
  calculate & show   ?
(based on kolmogorov-smirnov test) ?   switch to linear
Using this information, you can identify whether the network has scale-free / small-world (long-tail power law distribution) or random (normal, bell-shaped distribution) network properties.

This may be important for understanding the level of resilience and the dynamics of propagation in this network. E.g. scale-free networks with long degree tails are more resilient against random attacks and will propagate information across the whole structure better.
If a power-law is identified, the nodes have preferential attachment (e.g. 20% of nodes tend to get 80% of connections), and the network may be scale-free, which may indicate that it's more resilient and adaptive. Absence of power law may indicate a more equalized distribution of influence.

Kolmogorov-Smirnov test compares the distribution above to the "ideal" power-law ones (^1, ^1.5, ^2) and looks for the best fit. If the value d is below the critical value cr it is a sign that the both distributions are similar.
