The on-line semi-intellectual journal of an oddball generalist.

As I was working on current events, a funny thing happened. I got diverted into makeing the connections with other periods of history, and in straightening out the kinks in my connections among nations. I have also been connectiing cities to other areas, and working on improving the connections with the major institutions. I set aside the current events and starting working on the connections among historical periods. At a certain point, these started showing enough progress that I could pick up on some of the areas that I had set aside. A little more work, and I begin to see more picking up on older areas. 

For some time, I have been working piecemeal, as one area or another seemed to need work, and I haven't been able to see a complete path from the top down to the little details.  But now enough of the connections are in place that I can say, it's working.

I have been working on getting the analysis of recent events caught up to the present, but at the rate of progress, it seemed likely to take the rest of the year to get caught up.  I decided to skip the analysis and at least get the raw material. The next update should be caught up to the present, meaning no more than a week behind. 


I have also resumed work in connecting periods of history, at a somewhat slower pace than what I was doing last June.  There is more to history than current events, so I am making room for prehistory, antiquity, and classical and medieval history to have reviews of how they have progressed.

The structural improvements are nearly done for now. I have only touched current events lightly for the past few days, but I will be resuming this, and trying to get caught up to the present.


I have finished the interconnection of pages of social structure and change and begun applying them to nations and peoples, and the main topic of Western Civilization is fully connected. More progress in this area will come as I fill out more content and gradually split off new topics based on the analysis of historical developments and examples of particular countries.


I have also begun more of the closer look into religion I have been wanting to do for quite some time. I have been aware for some time that there is a tradition that Christianity was introduced into India by St. Thomas: I was not aware there is as much historical support for the tradition. I also expected there to be some presence of Roman Catholicism in India and Indonesia; there is a bit more than I had expected. I expect more discoveries as I progress.

Another update with the corrected site map and other developments over the past month is now visible.


I have another round of structural improvements to do, more history and recent events, better interconnection of nations, more development of social structure and change, including application to more nations, and a little more religion.  I've noticed that I can and ought to fill out the text for a few rather spase entries connecting history, nations and peoples to social structure and change, so I will be giving some attention to that.

I've done the structural improvements I mentioned in my last post. Current events of in Egypt and Pakistan will require another round of splitting off subsections,  but I will wait for that.  As for the site map, Ooch, Eech Ouch! It's been almost three years since I last updated some sections of it. That's been remedied, and will go on the next update.


I've also finished a pass through recent events. I still need to do some anaysis for last September before I can being improving the summaries.  January 2011 has separation of events as far as Egypt, February 2011 as far as Indonesia, March 2011 has Northeast Europe, April has India, and May has Asiatic peoples. June through September is still being analyzed. I have events all the way to October 1, and everything in place to begin  the current quarter.
