Visualizing your zettels vs structure notes
Hey Zettlers, I find this post captures the beauty (and power) of the Zettelkasten method in a simple way! However, the actual visualization (or seeing the connections in general) part confuses me. I'm using sublimeless_zk on Windows and don't have much luck visualizing nor seeing the connections of my whole archive.
I get the point on different levels of structure notes--they make it easy to just add hierarchies to related notes. However, say you have this connection:
- elephants are big
- elephants have great memory
- elephants have amazing ears
And let's say (for the sake of argumentation), the "elephants have amazing ears" is connected to "elephants are big". I wouldn't be able to see the connection between them through a structure note.
So, how would you go about this? I'm thinking the Ruby script created by @ctietze is a potential solution. But I don't have any background in code. I'll experiment on that one in a moment and come back to this post later.
You're also welcome to post solutions other than a graphic visualization
P.S. My aim is to see connections between same-level notes that cannot be shown in structured notes so that I can write about this connection once I'm writing a point about it on my final deliverable (book).
