    1. Nevertheless, the very fact that I am going through my notes reflects a new habit I am trying to build, of setting time aside every week, and sometimes more often, deliberately to tend the oldest notes I have and the notes I created or edited in the past week. Old notes take longer, because I have to check old links and decide what to do if they have rotted away. Those notes also need to be reshaped in line with zettelkasten principles. That means deciding on primary tags, considering internal links, splitting the atoms of long notes and so on. At times it frustrates me, but when it goes well I do see structure emerging and with it new thoughts and new directions to follow.

      This is reminiscent of the idea that indigenous peoples regularly met at annual feasts to not only celebrate, but to review over their memory palaces and perform their rituals as a means of reviewing and strengthening their memories and ideas.

    1. I don’t think the right answer is to use something like the Mnemonic medium to memorize a cookbook’s contents. I think a likelier model is: each time you see a recipe, there’s some chance it’ll trigger an actionable “ooh, I want to make this!”, dependent on seasonality, weather, what else you’ve been cooking recently, etc. A more effective cookbook might simply resurface recipes intermittently over time, creating more opportunities for a good match: e.g. a weekly email with 5-10 cooking ideas, perhaps with some accompanying narrative. Ideally, the cookbook would surface seasonally-appropriate recipes. Seasonality would make the experience of “reading” a cookbook extend over the course of a year—a Timeful text.

      Indigenous peoples not only used holidays and other time-based traditions as a means of spaced repetition, but they also did them for just this purpose of time-based need. Winter's here and the harvest changes? Your inter-tribal rituals went over your memory palace for just those changes. Songs and dances recalled older dishes and recopies that hadn't been made in months and brought them into a new rotation.

      Anthropologists have collected examples of this specific to hunting seasons and preparations of the hunt in which people would prepare for the types of game they would encounter. Certainly they did this for feast times and seasonal diets as well. Indians in the Americas are documenting having done things like this for planting corn and keeping their corn varieties pure over hundreds of years.

    1. These are preliminary results, and need more investigation.

      How preliminary can they really be? The idea of spaced repetition goes back to the ancient Greeks and Romans and Hermann Ebbinghaus did psychology research on the topic and was publishing in 1885. Surely they've got to have a better grasp than this indicates here.

    1. Spock Prime, interprété par Leonard Nimoy, constitue donc la version plus âgée du Spock interprété par Zachary Quinto. Un acteur plus vieux interprète le futur du personnage interprété par un autre acteur.

      Répétition du terme "interprète"

    2. ce reboot et offrir une nouvelle chronologie.

      "à ce reboot [virgule] et [lui] offrir une nouvelle chronologie"

    3. e thème de Giacchino. C’est le thème principal de ce Star Trek de 2009, le fameux « Enterprising Young Men », le thème du reboot et de cet univers diégétique naissant composé par ces jeunes acteurs. Mais si l’on tend l’oreille, on se rend rapidement compte que le thèm

      Répétition de "thème".

    4. u thème de Courage vers le thème principal du film de 2009 de Giacchino. Ce thème

      Il faudrait supprimer une des trois occurence de "thème".

    5. Avec Star Trek, nous sommes donc confrontés à un reboot qui est à la fois un préquel et une suite, fait probablement unique en 20094. A l’aide de son compositeur fétiche, Michael Giacchino, J.J. Abrams va se servir de ce mélange formel comme terrain de jeu et signer son crime via la musique du film.

      La formulation "fait unique en 2009" revient souvent, de même que le fait que le réalisateur "signe son crime".

    6. comme le point de départ de la franchise. À priori, la série originale Star Trek (Gene Roddenberry, 1966-1969) constitue ce point d’origine. Si le film d’Abrams s’était contenté d’être un reboot de ce point de départ,

      Répétition de "point de départ"

    7. En 2009, pour J.J. Abrams et Paramount Pictures, il s’agit de relancer une franchise dont le dernier film, le dixième de la franchise, remonte à 2002 : Star Trek : Nemesis (Stuart Baird). La franchise

      "franchise" apparaît trois fois en deux phrases.

    8. Ensuite parce que la franchise se concentre sur un groupe de personnage initial gravitant autour des personnages de Kirk et de Spock avant d’en aborder d’autres au fur et à mesure des différentes séries et/ou films. Ces différents groupes de personnages

      Il faudrait éviter la triple répétition de "personnages" et la double répétition de "groupe de personnages"

    9. D’autant plus que la forme télévisuelle se déclinera aussi bien sous la forme de séries live que celle d’une série animée : Star Trek, la série animée (Star Trek, The Animated Series, 1973-1974).

      "D'autant plus que la forme télévisuelle se déclinera aussi bien à travers une série animée (Star Trek, the Animated Series, 1973-1974) que des séries live."

    10. Déjà par le simple fait, ce qui est déjà notable dans l’étude des phénomènes de sérialité et de transmédialité, qu’elle

      Afin d'éviter la répétition de "déjà", on pourrait écrire, par exemple "Déjà par le simple fait, notable dans l'étude des phénomènes de sérialité et de transmédialité" ou encore "Par le simple fait, déjà notable dans l'étude des phénomènes de sérialité et de transmédialité"

    11. Les chronologies diégétiques et de production de la franchise Star Trek sont certainement

      Possibilité de supprimer "de la franchise" pour écrire "et de production de Star Trek", afin d'éviter la répétition du mot "franchise" avec la phrase précédente.

    1. repetition of yes all leads up to the final yes to marriage. the lack of punctuation also makes the whole thing read as if it's being said very quickly, as if a lot of thoughts are happening all at once.

    1. master

      the duality of master and disaster

    2. losing

      the repetition of the many forms of the verb "to lose" highlights the theme of loss throughout the poem without the poet having to explicitly tell the reader what it is about

    1. We 

      The repetition of the word "we" (as well as the placement in the poem) create a rhythm that stands out. Especially since the lines are very short, the words that are repeated stands out even more.

    1. A president with credibility

      Repetition used to emphasize a point he is trying to make. He clearly enjoys using rhetorical strategies in his writing, instead of taking a straight-forward, completely formal voice.

    1. Of the ash, stray bricks, and weeds. Of twisted metal and charred patio furniture. Of the pine trees still standing on the edge of the lots, their towering trunks now charcoal black. Of the lonely white brick fireplace in the middle of it all, the only surviving structure, metal pokers hanging expectantly by the grate.

      Tone changes from the first line to become more gloomy. Repetition w/ "of..." sentances. Fireplace might be a symbol or something? Several good choices in wording.

    1. the nomadic subjects

      Muckelbauer has a whole riff on nomads, traveling, and sophists in Future of Invention that resonates here and also above when Braidotti was talking about affirmation, negativity, and binaries.

      For Muckelbauer, traveling and repetition are central to discovery (even if the travel is over the same ground). I particularly like when he says, "we cannot know what a sophist is before setting out" (86)--and that lack of knowing makes the search more difficult because how will one know the sophist when one encounters him or her? Repetition is even more important as one must continue searching even after one has found a sophist, if for nothing else to make sure it was really a sophist.

    1. return

      Unlike Lanham, Muckelbauer doesn't seem bothered by this sort of repetition. Dwelling on and returning to this question isn't "simple" repetition for him but achieves a more complex purpose.

    1. simply to repeat,

      'Simple' repetition is one way to look at it, but Muckelbauer's Future of Invention provides an entirely different take on the value of repetition, of reproducing. Though both Quintilian and Erasmus return to similar ground again and again, they and the layout of the land are not precisely as they were before.

    1. The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradi- tion is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato

      But these footnotes are inscribed forms of thought. Plato is himself nothing but a series of written inscription - of which these footnotes are a part.

    1. Am I immortal?

      Winzy repeatedly returns to this question. He is wishing that it is not true, but he knows that Cornelius' elixir did affect him in the way he expected.

    1. please please please please please please please

      Hemingway's use of repetition highlights Jig's strong reaction towards the American. Emotional, exasperated, the girl explodes in a shower of repetition. From all of this suppression and perhaps forced attendance to an abortion, she in protest climaxes into a crescendo of begging. Though it can be viewed as childish and immature, that is a sliver of her character. In the end, this can be suggesting of a theme of young vs. old. More accurately, a theme of rebellion.

    1. I grow old ... I grow old ...

      repitition. transitioning from being a side character to being even less signficant

      repetition of the word "of" helps readers remember so that they can become "reciters".

    1. Through duration time is ritualized. Bycultivating duration – that is, by doing things over and over – people createsignificant habits and rituals.

      Through duration of time and repeatedly doing things and creating habits are people also creating rhythms?

    1. This book suggests not that networked computing creates the predicament of hospitality but rather that it takes up this very old problem—the problem of others arriving whether we invited them or not—over and over again.

    1. There are two universal, general gifts be-stowed by nature upon man, Reason and Speech; dialectic is the theory of the former, grammar and rhetoric of the latte

      Language is probably the greatest tool human kind has. Reasoning exists in many animals, but extensive communication networks and language is ours! Also, poor use of the word "Universal" here. If it was a universal gift, it would be for everyone and not just man.

    1. Who is such a fool as to think this wisdom?

      There is something to be said about taking the opposite side. In the sciences, there is an idea of falsifiablility. To make ones argument or studies better, they take the side of the other idea and try to prove it true instead. I don't think that's what's he's going for, but to discount taking up an idea that we disagree with/believe is false is advanced skepticism/devil's advocate

    1. However, neither class of teachers is in possession of a science by which they can make capable athletes or capable orators out of whomsoever they please

      I disagree with this to an extent. When it boils down to it, yes, it is the student who puts forth the effort or the will. However, a good teach can give the student the tools they need to succeed in sport or knowledge. No pressure, Professor Boyle.

    2. Let me ask you, however, not to pay any attention to what you have heard about me in the past from my would-be slanderers and calumniators

      A reminder of what was said above. Reaffirming the listener/reader to ignore the past and what was said and focus on what is being said. Repetition... good? and... oh no... what have I become?! Agreeing with the use of repeating?! BOYLE YOU'VE TAINTED ME

    3. Indeed no one may rely on the honesty of his life as a guarantee that he will be able to live securely in Athens; for the men who have chosen to neglect what is their own and to plot against what belongs to others do not keep their hands off citizens who live soberly and bring before you only those who do evil; on the contrary, they advertise their powers in their attacks upon men who are entirely innocent, and so get more money from those who are clearly guilty.

      I know this is going somewhere, Boyle. So please don't take this as a comment like hating repetition. Okay, we good? Good. So far this entire reading is nothing but Tu Quoque. I am sure Isocrates is going to eventually explain himself, but this is all the logical fallacy of using critique to critique. Don't yell at me!

    1. This man will never cease talking nonsense

      I want to agree, but I can see the tactic Socrates is using: Begging the Question. I mean REPETITION?! Fuck that!

    2. Help me then to draw out the conclusion which follows from our admissions; for it is good to repeat and review what is good twice and thrice over, as they sa

      Repetition. It's importance to learning, seems central. He pulls Callicles in, tries to make him form the conclusions and feigns ignorance.

    3. Then not only custom but nature also affirms that to do is more disgraceful than to suffer injustice, and that justice is equality; so that you seem to have been wrong in your former assertion, when accusing me you said that nature and custom are opposed, and that I, knowing this, was dishonestly playing between them, appealing to custom when the argument is about nature, and to nature when the argument is about custom

      Proving the same point from many different angles. Repetition.

    4. And the same, Gorgias, is true of the other arts:—all of them treat of discourse concerning the subjects with which they severally have to do.

      I know Boyle said the repetition is used for effect, but that doesn't work for me. I find it as rambling, and I start losing interest in what is said because I want to further the discussion. One could argue it is a lack of patience on my part, but I see it as "shit or get off the pot." Examples are not explanations. I know, I know... I am a stick in the mud
