We discussed your tagging ideas at a geek dinner in london last summer, so when i read this today I thought of you. How the brain tags.

Cool that one John, I immediately took it in favour of my views of course :)

In this sense: If using taxonomy / tree structures you have to learn the full path, even the irrelevant relationships effectively blocking that direct method of the brain "tagging" areas for immediate use.

Why would the male reproductive organ of plants have any serious bearing on my knowledge of plants? Well I need to know that by heart in order to find the species within Carl's system...

Take a marmotte (murmeltier) - for me it certainly looks like a beaver and it lives in holes in the ground, no way I would find it under the branch of squirrels! Hey it does not even climb bushes :)

My brain would loose out on that one...
