Happy Sunday afternoon.

Just want to mention that I received a very interesting reply from Pat Kinsella, regarding the hierarchical structure of cognition (etc.) -- and I have taken the liberty of adding him to this new Forum on Conceptual Structure.

The idea there -- is to create a strictly technical discussion, that looks at these questions in a hard-edged and computer science kind of way.

I have the feeling this could become very interesting. Just take our time, and study these questions carefully -- I personally feel this subject is ready for a breakthrough. We'll get these links to articles on Wikipedia available soon -- with an explanation as to why they matter, and how their implications are related to what we are doing.

I've also added Bill Daunch and James Corrigan to this new "associated" network (LightPages provides a way that independent networks can be horizontally linked), supposing that this kind of discussion might be interesting to you guys.

Anybody else here is also welcome, should this seem appealing.

This morning, I was beginning to assemble an initial library of essential readings, probably all taken from Wikipedia -- on a few core themes, such as taxonomy, ontology and semantics. And then, it just so happened that I got an email message from a Computer Science professional at a university, who had read a paper I wrote (years ago), and who found it interesting (The Universal Hierarchy of Abstraction). This is somewhat unusual, since I wrote this paper almost fifteen years ago, and despite being on the internet all this time, I seldom get a comment -- it seems to be a little too original and revolutionary.

So, I set aside for the moment this business of putting together a bibliography, and set up a special and dedicated forum system here on LightPages, just to consider these aspects

Creating a dedicated system for this topic might help bring the discussion into focus, since this Bridge framework is concerned with a very broad array of factors, and the conceptual structure material tends to be very "left brain".
