Critical Mass of Ideas
To create an Archipelago of Ideas, you divergently gather a group of ideas, sources, or points that will form the backbone of your essay, presentation, or deliverable. Once you have a critical mass of ideas to work with, you switch decisively into [[convergence mode]] and link them together in an order that makes sense. — Building a Second Brain:

The Archipelago of Ideas technique is a contemporary reinvention of the age-old practice of outlining—laying out the points you want to include up front, so that when it comes time to execute all you have to do is string them together. — Building a Second Brain
Taxonomies and Tagging
For millennia, philosophers and academics have been obsessed with finding a universal way of organizing humanity’s knowledge. As far back as the fourth century BCE, Aristotle attempted to classify all knowledge into ten broad themes. In the sixteenth century, English philosopher Francis Bacon argued that all human knowledge could be sorted into just three categories: memory, reason, and imagination. In the twentieth century, the Indian librarian Shiyali Ramamrita Ranganathan proposed classifying knowledge by personality, matter, energy, space, and time.
“To decompensate means to lose the ability to maintain one’s state of mental health, typically due to some kind of stress. The word decompensate is most often applied to someone who is having a breakdown in their mental health mechanisms, especially someone who has an existing mental illness or psychological condition.”

The cetacean’s paralimbic lobe processes information rapidly with extreme richness
The cetacean’s Paralimbic Lobe Processes Information Rapidly with Extreme Richness The paralimbic lobe is also believed to be a continuation of the sensory and motor areas found in the supralimbic lobe in human brains. For humans, projection areas are widely separated from one another, meaning anything we perceive from sight, sound and impulses must travel along fibre tracts with a great loss of time and information. The cetacean’s paralimbic lobe brings this all together in one, processing information rapidly with a richness that we cannot understand.

Imprints Imprints are unique runes, or a series of runes, that absorb and hold source that can then be unleashed at a later time by anyone using the Runeword.

There are two ways that the Xenai ‘make’ Source embeds Making Simple implantation process of Source crystals, including the Xenai element, the Blight Crystal and the dravcasting. These two work in conjunction to rewrite the DNA to make its connection to each element stronger, increasing both Source power and Source dominance Reshaping A more complicated procedure. While the five Terrestrial Elements are still embedded into the patient, along with the Blight Crystal and dravcasting, each shard is carved with Runes prior to implantation.
Universe: The Array Homeworld: Psyllis #wiki/race Born Illara on their homeworld, the Xenai were made by a void-walker known as Olivier. Sick with the effects of an Exotic Element 101 that had gotten lodged in his body, Olivier began to experiment with implanting various source elements into the bodies of others in hope of finding an element that would neutralize the affects of the crystal in his body. He eventually discovered an new Exotic Element 101 which would come to be known as the Blight Crystal.
Writing Process ^0bdce8 Via Evergreen notes Write durable notes continuously while reading and thinking. (Evergreen note-writing as fundamental unit of knowledge work) Each time you add a note, add a link to it to an outline, creating one if necessary (Create speculative outlines while you write). Eventually, you’ll feel excited about fleshing out one of those outlines. (Let ideas and beliefs emerge organically) Write new notes to fill in missing pieces of the outline.
Essentially, world-walking is a ‘side effect’ of the Sundering. As the barrier of The Void breaks down, holes in the barrier allow for peering through the Void into other worlds. Think of the Void as a microscopic web that is Sourcephobic. If any other type of Source touches it, that part of the web dies. Universe Array of Worlds

Erdu terminology for each of the Exotic Elements. Each is a development from their own base Source material as the world split off from their own. Each Thread ties into Allsource but splits into a series of branching paths as the world develop and change fates from one another. There is always one Source-mancer in the Erdu Mystics that has mastered all Threads. Within the Chamber of Fate, the Erdu that has the most mastery of their Thread sits in the council (imagine Firelink in DS3, but with two rows of thrones, five on bottom, four on top, in the middle of the four on the third tier is a balcony off the Mancer’s Alcove where the Mancer presides over the council) — The Mancer’s job is not to RULE over the council, but to essentially ‘fact check’ the council.

Commonly known in the earlier eras of Allsource as Intuition. Source power is that ability to connect to Array of Worlds and to Allsource. While most things with high Source power are sentient beings, objects can be imbued with source power. These objects do not have Intuition, which is why Source power becomes the correct technical term to use when discussing Source at the end of the Second Era when Source evolves from being mostly sourcecast based to being a form of technology.
Natural Affinity to Different Elements Source dominance is the element of Source that a caster is naturally attuned to. Source-mancers Able to attune to all Terrestrial Elements, Source-mancers are considered ‘dominant’ in Source. However, this typically manifests as a wide area of dominance that has little depth. Universe: the array
Purpose Source conduits are needed to traverse the Array. There are natural conduits that exist, specifically the Erdu, who are made of conduit materials. Any Source crystal, whether it is a Terrestrial Element or an Exotic Element 101, can be used as a conduit with enough Source power. However, Exotic Element 101s also function as conduits themselves, although they contain less Source power than a sourcecast. Universe: the array
sourcecasting is made possible by Intuition. All source-capable people first have Intuition. For reference on the levels of Intuition, see Intuition. Source-casting is part learned skill and natural ability. Illara and Inari children are born with innate attunements to certain Terrestrial Element. This natural ability is then augmented through rigorous training. Due to the reliance on natural ability, the two way nature of casting, and the time requirement for mastery, most casters reach Mastery in only a single element.

Exotic Elements The Void is a manifestation of connection to Allsource. From this connection rises higher forms of Intuition, which is the core of being able to manipulate the world with the Terrestrial Elements. The further from Allsource that a world is, the more the the blueprint muddies: so Exotic Element 101s arise. Like rogue branches in a code repository, they must be eliminated or merged into the Master branch. This is the job of the Erdu.
#wiki/race Erdu Cleaning up the Multiverse, One Branch at a Time The Erdu are essentially Allsource’s cleanup processes. When a world is ready to be merged with another, they manage the process, intentionally breaking down the Void between those two worlds until they ‘collide’. This is why Allsource’s data validity is so important and their entire society is structured around maintaining its integrity: when two similar worlds merge, there is no notable effect.
Erdcasting Type: Exotic Element 101 Discovery Order: 9 Description Blue crystals in humanoid form The Erdu themselves are the crystals for casting. Because they are made of their Source element, they have no need to use Intuition or other schools of source. They exist in harmony with their element, which allows them to see / hear the entire universe. Quatum mechanics shit. Vibrations between molecules making a song to them that is their language.
Dravcasting Type: Exotic Element 101 Discovery Order: 0 Description Golden or pale yellow crystal Dravite interacts with blood / DNA in all lifeforms, allowing for systemic effect when implanted with other elements. It provides a sort of ‘tuning’ effect, syncing vibrations and manipulating them (think quantum physics level) — the bonds between molecules. However, it does not have a network to spread changes through unless combined with the Blight Crystals.
Daughter of the Void
Daughter of the Void #planning/project #wiki/novel Universe: Array of Worlds Summary After the second cataclysmic Sundering impacts Sunterra, the survivors left by Shara are rushing to figure out what happened. Stuck in the Void, they face Kingston who is not entirely the man they remember. Universe Array of Worlds
Cosmology #wiki Nine worlds (or branches) spring from Allsource. Each world is associated with what were known on Old Terra as the Nine Muses, who are also the Nine Erdu and known by the Illarans as Mystics. Allsource serves as a hub for all the worlds. Beyond Allsource, the barrier between worlds, is The Void. The worlds began to collapse out of their rigid structure and collide with each other in the Sundering Era.
Concentration “Going small” is ignoring all the things you could do and doing what you should do. It’s recognizing that not all things matter equally and finding the things that matter most. It’s a tighter way to connect what you do with what you want. It’s realizing that extraordinary results are directly determined by how narrow you can make your focus. —–The ONE Thing
Chaos & Order Spectrum of Source
Chaos & Order Spectrum of Source The Nature of All Things Whether Source-attuned or not, all things in all worlds fall on the Chaos or Order side of the Spectrum of Source. Most things are fairly central and can shift to either side, particularly sentient creatures of all kinds. However, the more important something is to the balance of Array of Worlds, the more it swings to one side or the other.
Blightcasting Type: Exotic Element 101 Discovery Order: 1 Description The Blight Crystal is red, more opaque than clear, but looks like it has a transparent layer on the outside before turning opaque. The ‘mimic’ stone. It is Source itself (which Intuition is a fundamental part of). It connects all things, like a network. Once connected, it adapts and reforms, either creating new pathways to achieve new function or restore function. Left to iself, it tries to ‘fill in the gaps’ it finds.
Blight Field Hafi recognized what had been a forearm, with a hand still attached. A few fingers were missing, but the ones that were left held a stiff and slightly curled grasp that he had seen many times before. The lifeless hand gripped at the air in obvious torment before slipping back under the ripples of crimson fluid. Ideas: Blight Crystal form in Blight Fields. Remnants of people and animals that died in the Sundering form the bodies, remade with Source as a Source conduit through The Void.
