THE FORMAT OF POSTS – A STYLE GUIDE
1 â A POST
THIS TITLE MEANS I WROTE IT FOR YOU TO READ AS AN ARGUMENT
(this cues you to important stuff)
And this is the body text here.
Particularly if I break it into paragraphs.
–ââthis is quoting someone elseââ–
—this is quoting myself—
â¦ â¦ is a
â¦ â¦ â¦ series that you might want to learn.
|SERIES|: This > Is > A > Dimensional > Definition
And more text goes here. Subheadings cue you to the content.
I use the signature line for myself. So that I can search for the posts I want to publish on my web site later. So they are sort of a âstamp of approvalâ.
2 â A NOTE OR SKETCH
this doesnât have header, isnât broken into paragraphs, and doesnât even use init-caps, so itâs just a record from elsewhere or quick thought or observation, or a work in progress â rumination.
3 â A PERSONAL OPINION
(this doesnât have a header, is in parenthesis and in all lower case, which means itâs possibly something to ignore â¦ because itâs not an argument. itâs just an opinion or feeling.)
4 â A DIARY ENTRY
this is something I wrote for myself that is unfiltered, and likely includes very personal feelings of my own, or on the state of my thinking, and not something that you will probably want to read unless the psychology that I operate under is of some interest to you or other.
5 — ON STYLE
Bold to allow for those of us who read quickly to scan by keywords.
Capitals: for names of Ideas, like âRationalismâ, âSovereigntyâ, âPropertarianismâ, or Neologisms, or to alert you to disambiguation (redefinitions).
Parentheticals “(…)”: to bridge operational(technical) and meaningful(familiar) terms, or to limit interpretation.
Series and Lists : a sequence of definitions representing a spectrum of terms. The use of series deflates, increases precision, and defeats conflation. First exposure to the methodologyâs use and repetition of series tends to both be the most obvious and most helpful of the techniques.
Constructions : tracing the path of the development of ideas from primitive to current constructions.
Algorithms : general processes for the construction of deflations.
– Analytic Philosophy is, of necessity, WORDY.
– Operational Language is, of necessity, WORDY.
– Programming Algorithms is, of necessity, WORDY.
– Law, whether Contractual, Legislative, or Constitutional, is WORDY.
– Algorithmic Natural Law is of necessity, WORDY.
Technical Languages evolve to speak precisely. Precise language contains technical terms and is wordy. Why, if all the other sciences require technical language, would we think that speaking technically in the science of cooperation is not going to be wordy?
Well, itâs going to be wordy.
I work in public, partly to conduct experiments. I am personally open in public because this prevents people attributing psychological motivations to me that I donât have. I create conflict in order to run tests. The purpose of running a test is to attempt to create a proof.
