[This is an Experiment:] Thinking Out Loud

What is written below is more or less what I thought during the evening of Wednesday, December 30th, 2015. What is in []’s was added at a later time.

[*These are two versions of the same story; one uses commas, and one uses dashes. This is to test which is easier to understand. All feedback is welcome.*]

Now here I is. Sitting at my computer typing [in Notes], watching words populate on my iPhone. Making connections. [A] Brain(s) braining. The Universe braining Earth brains braining internetworks. Connecting physical, macroscopic networks [endpoints, devices, ways, paths] to advance (increase the capacity of) our brain(s).

Do the extra symbols, notations help? Do they provide, generate clarity or confusion? []’s [are a] secondary language, layer (language added at a later time [typically while editing a thought stream]). Parenthesis provide clarifying information inline (while I continue (am) thinking and writing), and commas in a string separate synonyms [similar, supporting, complimentary words]. That’s a loaded sentence. Take a second to dissect it. Celebrate. Moments, songs, periods of time. Is a sentence a string? How can a computer [search engine, machine] distinguish between synonyms [words with relative meanings and an individual’s intent]? Must we create new grammar. Visual grammar?
