So how many times have you had to explain a very basic concept to someone, a concept that most people should already be well versed with? Well, you need not do that anymore.

I propose to write a dictionary, an explanation of key concepts by writers of ddo who can write with a more personalized touch, and explain concepts more humanly. For the time being I'm limiting this to Philosophy, and Science.

For the "A" of Philosophy alone I have around 200 words, for which I have already written explanations. I need a team of around 10 or so people who I will in a group message show these writings to, and who will help edit, and better them.

This team will also be responsible for writing some of the explanations, bettering many of them, and in general helping me with the task of making a coherent dictionary.

My aim is that this is a place where we ddo members can quote in debates to refer to specific concepts which are not normally available or easily understood.

In example we have the terms: a priori, a posteriori, dasein, seinstruktur, M-theory, C-Series of Time, etc.

So who wants to help me out?

I'll write down your name then. Though right now we're focusing on Philosophy and Science.

Yeah, Ajab, I think you should expand this more broadly to include topics *other* than philosophy and science. People on DDO clearly have different talents and interests than you do, and that would be the best way to incorporate and leverage vastly diverse skill sets.

I get it since I don't do school work. I usually do it in the 3 minutes before the teacher shows up and I do meh. But for things which need thought they are like "wtf m8 u l8 2 d due d8"

Yeah, so do I. Even we learn geology in geography class ... I'm sure they do everywhere. But the subject doesn't encompass it all.

BTW, when I said geography I had stuff like bid-rent theory, least-cost theory etc. in mind that would be more relevant to DDO. I just said rock formation because. :P
