I saw this article and Medium and it’s not revelatory but thought it was interesting with how it connects to Obsidian:
Build a baseline knowledge of a subject, the ‘trunk’ of a subject
“One bit of advice: it is important to view knowledge as sort of a semantic tree — make sure you understand the fundamental principles, i.e. the trunk and big branches, before you get into the leaves/details or there is nothing for them to hang on to.”
You can’t remember what you can’t connect
“Musk never learns a piece of information at random. Everything he intakes, he connects back to some deeper, more solid base.”
Thought it was interesting to see how these two principles are core to Obsidian. Particularly when you layer in a LYT (@nickmilo) approach.
