Tow things stimulated me in PDR
, an Italian Rose (in) Egypt, reflctions & follw up about life possiable patterns... PDR was wondering if Life is a repetitive cycle
One is the Cyber Dimension of her personal WEB-Where Everybody Believe
theory & it's natural virtual manifestation in the BlogOsphere... Interesting indeed ...
Two is her reflection on "Each one's Life is an "Encyclopedia"
in itself" ...
I looked up the word Encyclopedia:
[[The word encyclopedia
, which to us usually means a large set of books, descends from a phrase that involved coming to grips with the contents of such books. The Greek phrase is enkuklios paideia, made up of enkuklios, "cyclical, periodic, ordinary," and paideia, "education," and meaning "general education." Copyists of Latin manuscripts took this phrase to be a single Greek word, enkuklopaedia, with the same meaning, and this spurious Greek word became the New Latin word encyclopaedia, coming into English with the sense "general course of instruction," first recorded in 1531. In New Latin the word was chosen as the title of a reference work covering all knowledge. The first such use in English is recorded in 1644.]].
The definition some how captured PDR last year cyclic reflection, if only linguistically with the cyclic part is very true but limited in a way to a group of people or language or common knowledge to a group of people that their language became more familiar to the body of knowledge (reads more dominant) that is the English Language, Other Languages having more limited influence. As you can see this is already more complex, that the cyclic (repetitive or the familiar & the common to a certain group) propagated to a more dominant ascending linear & exploding knowledge.
With the cyber dimension of PDR reflection I’ve also looked up “Wikipedia”
as a word and as a project: Wiki
is quick in Hawian and I think is an interesting humanized cyber age and environment project as a multi language "Encyclopedia" on the web that could contribute in unifying world cultures knowledge if properly and democratically managed???. The beauty of this is that the contribution to this body of knowledge is accessible to the individual level to reach the climax of potential complexity and in some way match PDR
own personal “WEB” amazing stuff. The task of converting the world's Knowledge into a web encyclopedia is tremendous.Wiki
is sometimes interpreted as the backronym for "What I know is", which describes the knowledge contribution, storage and exchange function.
