I am sharing a scale of the fidelity of ideas (in meaning and mediums), which I found helpful when considering education, coaching, and tending to thoughts.
‘Living ideas’ grow in meaning and scope over time
‘Evergreen’ writing stays the same and preserves its meaning for the writer.
‘Artifact’ is writing that loses its meaning for the author over time.
I have long believed in the value of living ideas (not to be confused with thinking in public). This email you’re reading is part of the third year-long exploration of a thought (previous ones were on  AI and  creative mediums). This taxonomy connects to the recent models I shared here (1, 2) and meta-disciplinarity (not to be confused with inter or transdisciplinarity).
Meta-disciplinarity works with living ideas and enables others to do the same.
