Folgezettel Heterarchy

Neuron allows you to organically build a Heterarchy out of your Zettelkasten over time. This is achieved by Linking without the cf flag. When a zettel links to another, it “branches of”1 to that zettel … unless cf is used (in which case it is not a branch off).

A folgezettel heterarchy differs from a traditional “category tree” in two key ways:

  • It is built organically over time based on the connections formed, instead of being pre-defined.
  • A note can have multiple parents.
