Hierarchical Branched Note Taking and The Archive App(is topography important?)
I'm very new to the Zettelkasten method of note taking.
My understanding is that Niklas Luhmann organised his notes through sequential numbering, sub numbering, and branching.
So his notes would be initially numbered something like
and when needed he would insert notes so it could become something like
Then when writing Niklas could follow the physical topography of the notes (which also contained references to other more distant notes) and have an outline of an interesting line of reasoning/related concepts.
Is it recommended to use this hierarchical naming when using The Archive? Or is it more a hang-up of a pre-digital method that can be replaced with tags and links within the notes so long as the notes have a unique identifier?
