Dirk Gentley's Zettelkasten

Someone reminded me of this book (and quote) recently, which tongue firmly in cheek Dirk Gently could have applied to his Zettelkasten:

I operate by investigating the fundamental interconnectedness of all things. Every particle in the universe affects every other particle, however faintly or obliquely. Everything interconnects with everything.
Dirk Gently, in Douglas Adams’ The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul


  • That's as holistic as a detective agency gets! :) Luhmann's super-theory was a theory that contained itself, and the Zettelkasten contains knowledge about itself, but is a holistic detective agency now more, less, or equally powerful as a super-theory of everything? 🤔
