When to reread a text
I am currently reading Sönke Ahrens' How to take smart notes where he stresses the difference between bibliographic notes, describing the core aspects of a text and Zettels to be used for your own thoughts about the text and more. The goal of the bibliographic notes is to not have to read the text in its entirety again but if future me has any questions about the text, he can work with the bibliographic note (at least that's how I read it).
This basically makes sense to me but at some point future me may have developed insights that allow him to read the text with different eyes and to notice different aspects in the original text that past me didn't see.
Now I wonder what your thoughts on this are. Is this a relevant problem to be aware of or just hogwash?
