I have tried versions of this title as a Google search several times really to end up close to where I started.
It seems as though these are pretty interchangeable. The permanent note is part of Niklas Luhmann’s Zettelkasten system and functions as the core of where the understanding and ideas are summarized and connected. This happens after they have been developed from fleeting notes or concepts from literature notes that are pulled out and summarized in your own words. The evergreen note is it’s own system description stemming from the idea of developing core notes of your ideas and understanding that can develop and evolve over time as your understanding develops and evolves.
The selective connection, use of your own words, and atomic description of these notes feel like the most critical pieces and these pieces seem to be the same for both.
I don’t want to get lost in semantics and these both seem very similar (as well as paradigm-shifting for me) and have helped me grow my understanding. I just want to make sure that if there is a core difference that fundamentally differentiates the two and provides a better system long-term that I’m not missing it.
