The contents in a Zettelkasten
I am stuck on whether different subject of notes should be in Zettelkasten:
_ I'm wondering whether I should have 2 Zettelkastens for notes of "unrelated" topics._ - I've read somewhere it should depend on the length of usage, but what if I plan on using both for a life time? I'd like to have the contents of ZK1 about sociology, philosophies, etc and ZK2 for health and science-related and other interests that don't exactly fit in ZK1 (eg: skincare, working out, tips for shorthand, molecular structures of skincare ingredients, tips for playing the guitar, piano; any useful tips for my interests/hobbies for future reference). Do notes have to be of similar fields? the ID system Niklas Luhmann is too rigid imo for notes unrelated? The method Luhmann uses gives a sense that the notes in the particular ZK must should be similar.
How do you go about using two ZKs or more and connecting them when needed? - There will be some occasions it would be useful to link the contents of ZK2 with ZK1: producing papers for assignments like looking into the ethicalness of mica. Would it then, be more effective having one Zettelkasten? I understand the linking but sometimes I just don't have an interest in linking the content of ZK2 to ZK1 so having 2 Zettelkastens is better suited. Or am I missing the beauty of the connecting notes that are unrelated at first glance? Suppose I had no idea how they'd relate because I've never read about it and don't intend to read on it?
