Calling all the geeks / experts on this forum!!
Let me start off by saying, I am new to Obsidian. I am loving the forums and undoubtedly the tool itself. I tried reading the posts to get some answers to my question on note taking, but I believe I got lost and overwhelmed
Okay, so let me get started.
I am organizing my notes in Obsidian around a particular topic that is structured. There is a specific parent / child relation to some items, while some of them have a sibling relationship, while others have a “relates-to” or “similar-to”.
To be clear, I am trying to solve if I can specify the associative ontology over hierarchical taxonomies which I believe Obsidian could provide. But is it fair to say that the “relations” between ontology classes (here notes) is missing?
Do we have a way to “define” what the relation is in a directed graph?
To provide a specific example;
- “CORE_NODE” is the MOC node / core node in my case
LAYER 2and the others aggregate to what is the “CORE_NODE”
- Topics under
LAYER 1; say
item-catcould have a “reference” to topics under, say,
LAYER 2, say
item-dog; but are completely non-overlapping.
item-dog is a different kind of relation (relates to / references) than what is needed in “LAYER 1” and “LAYER 2” (aggregates). The bigger problem arises if later down the road, it could be mistaken that
item-dog are similar concepts, but they arent. A simple association does not help here.
Any thoughts on this?
Sorry if I spoke anything incorrectly.
