i’m trying to figure a way to chart singular events. at first i thought of two axis: x for time spent, y for energy exerted. then i thought of that little marvel of a compass … one little lever pinned to a fulcrum, forever attracted north.

the secondary axises are extrapersonal events. the qualities are time (immediate to future), focus (unobserved, observed), fortune (beneficent, detrimental), predictability (controlled, uncontrolled), degree of personalization (immediate apprehension, distant), ease of remembering. others should be added.

the only icons of this are deep sea vessels and fighter aircraft.
