Connecting

A lot of what I've been doing lately is making links between areas I would like to study or know more about. Some of the newer areas, though, are ones that lead to specific, usable information.

Contining a description of my outline and the progress I'm making on it:
I have a list of cities that I intend to use in the examination of countries; Not just capital cities, but other prominent ones.
Typically, the social sciences of anthropology and sociology are kind of twins. As they have evolved, sociology deals largely with large, modern, industrialized societies, while sociology deals with smaller, non-industrial peoples. I seriously dislike this approach. I consider societies to be complexes that include not only people, but their artifacts and patterns of thought, behavior, and social organization.

At the next lower level of organization come a group of "institutions".
Religion is an important one to society in general, and my chief approach to this is through the major religious traditions. These include what I call Abrahamic (chiefly Christianity, Judaism, and Islam), Asiatic, pagan, and secularism, and they connect to history and are distributed among the various peoples of the world.


Comments:
Speaking of making links, I hadn't checked your website for a while, and I noticed that you'd been having some pretty vivid shouting matches in your dreams. Have you ever heard of the book, "Feelings Buried Alive Never Die?" I've heard that a number of people find it a very good book. I've never read it personally, but it might be helpful if you get a chance to read it.
 
Never read it, but the title sounds good. I'll keep an eye open for it.
