The degree to which a person is able to further modify, or enhance their idea, is greatly reduced and constrained in the event that this idea has been written down by them in its original form.

Albert Einstein: There is no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy. There is nothing good in war... Except its ending.
One of the reasons (apart from the million obvious reasons) I never really look at actual websites any more is that cloudflare/google/whoever have decided to bully the hell out of me with relentless bloody "select all images with a bus" bullshit

With #thinking, it is that fragments and parts of concepts fly around in the mind all the time. But while they all point to something, it is only a rare. sudden moment when these disperate inklings all come together in an insight that makes perfect sense. And even if individual fragments are preserved, it is important to be there to capture the one cataclysmic #moment.
“Today, in a vote that split almost every major EU party, Members of the European Parliament adopted every terrible proposal in the new Copyright Directive and rejected every good one, setting the stage for mass, automated surveillance and arbitrary censorship of the internet: text messages like tweets and Facebook updates; photos; videos; audio; software code -- any and all media that can be copyrighted.”
When you write down everything associated with an idea in order not to loose that idea, at most you can only provide guidelines that would hopefully evoke that idea freshly again in the mind, but you can never codify it exactly into the writing itself.
When brainstorming, a person’s #writing ideas will always share some similar thematic concern, and can often overlap, even if they occur to you years apart and under very different circumstances they fill up some overarching grand narrative that sort of slowly fills up and completes various aspects of a few overarching ideas.
Very often even when I have forgotten, or dismissed certain #ideas previously, they will eventually come back and reoccur sometime to fill gaps.

Today's fun fact: Forests are inherently socialist. Seriously.
In a forest, most plants are linked together by an underground network of mycorrhizal fungi. Via the fungi, the plants share resources around so that they can all benefit. Wha's more, the plants contribute more or less depending on how much they have. Plants with more resources contribute more to their community, helping to nurture the small, young, and weak ones.
This is one of my favourite random pieces of knowledge!
