This project and database

Definition / description

I am a database developer, working with MS SQL and the ColdFusion programming language -- a bit old-fashioned, true, but employing simple principles that are consistent with this overall vision for ontology, in a traditional "rows and columns" form that enables a strong global/local consistency and connection.

The core architecture of the project runs on three categories or classes of logical objects:

  • Theme groups -- broad general categories like topic headings, under which a lot of subjects can be organized
  • Themes -- semi-independent subjects which can be grouped together under theme groups and displayed in any order. Themes can appear in multiple theme groups as appropriate
  • Terms -- words or simple basic concepts that tend to form a core vocabulary, supposed including all the basic concepts from cognitive psychology, semantics and epistemology and the foundations of mathematics

The actual programming mechanics of this project are simple and unsophisticated, but very adaptable and fluent. My framework is just simple "server-side" programming. Click something on a web-page, that click sends a signal to the ColdFusion and database servers, which then send a response. By today's standards that is primitive. But I don't want to learn sophisticated programming. I want to develop sophisticated applications of simple technology that I can handle.

The rows and columns model is basic to this entire structure. Our intuition is that this model preserves global/local connections through basic and linear forms of recursive nesting. Our model of the world involves recognizing that the global is constituted from the local, and that the local is a reprisal of the global in much more detailed specific form.

We are presuming that this framework may be the optimal way to organize a form of democracy-mediated global homeostasis running on basic principles of cybernetics. This idea is a reprisal of the ancient cybernetic idea of "governor" as defined by James Watt in the steam engine. It is a traditional formula for stability across the world at all levels, consistent with the notion of homeostasis as it occurs in the human body an in all living things.
