The Way of Being and database—current plans

The documents

The essential aim is realization in interaction with sharing and writing-editing-refining (chiseling)—especially for the way-pocket manual (the portable version). Minimize repetition / inconsistency: aim, experience, the block… Continue to develop the main essays and the resources. Canonical order of topics, especially Being vs experience and psychology. Styles—Central for main points, Academic for academic elaboration, and Central 2 for informal material including explanations.

Files to maintain in parallel resources for the way and related files: main influences, system of human knowledge, concepts, canonical dilemmas and home (index) (in high level directories?).

Stories

See section Stories in the way-template.html.

The site

Home = general + links to: world issues – dedicate-affirm – The Way. Details = essays; modify index (eliminate about), index-detail, amitra, and amitra-detail; implement then eliminate or make a secondary link: design. Search bar, See site design.

The database

As follows.

DATABASE DESIGN

Preliminary

Edit the pocket manual—improve the concept outline—and prepare it for the database

Review the database tables, queries and forms so far. Especially look into ways to implement knowledge organization and reorganization.

Elements

One table for each main category

Identify the categories

Normalization

Extensibility

Begin with toy

Combining, viewing, and entering data

Relationships and queries

Forms and reports

Study

Experiment with access

Access Inside Out

Normalization

Forms with datasheets

Queries

Internet—database, knowledge-concept databases, access databases, conversion to 2002 format

Design

What do I want the database to do?

How will I implement it?

What can a database do? Learn while implementing toy versions!

Tables

Concepts

Principles of organization filtering and re-organization—e.g. by queries

Multiple metaphysical paradigms—e.g. materialism, idealism, Being…

Multiple epistemic paradigms—correspondence, coherence, pragmatism…

Re-organization according to these principles, different organizations

Dual organizations and re-organizations

Levels of detail

Levels of sophistication

Multiple outlines per combinations of above—leading to multiple texts

Special topic texts according to subtopic (see filelist.html)

Links to other tables and topic essays

Fields

Concept; level—primary, secondary…; database links to thinkers, schools, works; external links to essays, talks; comments

Split into primary and other?

Primary and secondary concepts

Primary—hierarchy and association… with database relationship and link to secondary

Separate tables for thinkers and actors?
