Note making system survey Anon 11/20/2022 (Sun) 21:30:01 ID:4e16d1 No. 948
I am not a very smart person, I cannot remember too many facts. So to get around this, I maintain notes religiously, this allows me to retain lot of knowledge whenever needed, do a quick study of a topic before I get to work on it etc. I have my own elaborate systems to do this (see pic rel). There are a many smart anons here. I want to know how Puranavid, Beyblade bengali, Fashy, Schizo and others manage their knowledge here. Do you guys have a system ? If so, then I would like to know all the details. Every autist detail, what works and why, why do you do things the way you do etc.
>>948 >>949 Your Caste?
>>948 I have a NAS that is accessible on every device I own, and I save notes to it. it gets synced and i format it later. i print whatever is worth it.
>>948 >>948 I can't make chad notes like you, so I rely on my shitty pointers , memory and reliable intuition
>>951 Yeah, I understand this, I used to do this but wanted to simplify my IT infra, so now its back to just one computer and syncing using syncthing. A good printer and scanner would be better than using my phone to scan images.
>>953 you can get a vps for 10 bucks a month, and make an ftp server on it, making it accessible from anywhere and any device you want. >scanner for scanning hardcopy books? A public library in my city has a great book scanner, and it's free to use. I use it for ripping hardcopies and uploading them in great quality.

>>948 If it's a specific topic then just search for it's cheatsheet, otherwise read a wiki page. You've the internet all the time, just put in any term you remmebr from the topic and retain all the knowledge
>>955 yeah, internet bookmarks are solid tools
>>952 I understand and its fine if it fits your purpose. I am a dimwit, who forgets simple everyday stuff. >>955 That is fine for shallow understanding, when you start to go deeper into things, you build your own understanding and ideas, you pick what is important from each topic and make your own. Everyone does this at small levels, but saving these thoughts can help you pick out bigger inferences. Take Puranavids vedas thread for example, you can read one quote at a time and get an understanding, if the quotes can be linked by theme then you read all quotes related to theme and gain an understanding of vedic thought in that theme. So on and so on. Internet is a very poor research tool. Quality of information varies from absolute trash to excellent, a person starting out does not know the difference. Wikipedia is usually full of shit on most topics. Reading books or watching videos/audiobooks on specific topcis, gives you information with context. Having your own understanding written down helps even more.
>>957 >when you start to go deeper into things, you build your own understanding and ideas In my case, this has already been done. When you learn something, give it your all and absorb as much knowledge as you can from whatever sources possible. You get your basics clear and then start connecting things to deeper level as you go through them. That's why it's bhery easy to retain all the knowledge when needed by just looking up a summary like page of your desired concept. >Internet is a very poor research tool Depends on the person using it. >Reading books or watching videos/audiobooks on specific topcis, gives you information with context. You can do this without being a consoomer to a specific way, all you need is curiosity. Use all the sources at your disposal and understand stuff.
>>948 Good thread. But I must admit I have no sort of organized note-taking system at all. My knowledge is mostly in my head. When I was in school I almost never took notes, and usually just studied from the textbook/slides or from memory. The topics I study outside of school are genuinely interesting to me, so I have an even easier time remembering them and no need for written notes. Though when it comes to Vedic information (e.g. where to find certain quotes), I have an unorganized text file called vedicnotes.txt, currently somewhat small, in which I place a citation (e.g. "RV 1.1.1") next to some English or Sanskrit keywords about it ("agni praise purohita Rtvij regular yaj weakening ratnadhA"), and just search the relevant keywords if I want to find quotes on a certain topic. I do have a very autistic system of text files in case you're curious, though these aren't exactly "notes". For example, I have a file called health.txt that records, for every single day since 2018, what time I woke up, what time I went to sleep, any symptoms I experienced, how much exercise I did, and a few other things.
>>984 It still fucks with me that no one has an autist note setup. My deep dives into topics are usually 100 books and other media, I don't like bookmarks because websites die and change and information on web is usually unreliable, lacking context or badly written. Veda's are a different beast altogether, I have real respect for you that your brain can keep track of all that. I need to write these things down, because then I have to work on something else (some personal stuff or a different hobby) and my active brain forgets the other thing. > I do have a very autistic system of text files in case you're curious, though these aren't exactly "notes".

Yeah, I understand, to me these notes/archives/records are important as well. Having all these notes available anytime I want, with relations and internal links is useful, I can find a particular variation of an equation that makes X task easy is very useful and in the next breath I can find info on some religious idea that is unique to a particular interpretation. I understand to most people, this is not useful. They digest information with their own interpretation and move on.
>>986 so pre digestion interpretation and thoughts are not important to them. They use the conclusions and move on.
