Anybody experience this? How do you organize/manage it?

Thought : Population
This is linked to a website about population
Youl create a Thought: Population Website

You found another source for population, this time its a book
You read the book and link another thought: Population Growth to thought: Population 
and also you create a Book Thought to Population Thought

And you add more Thoughts to Population like Exponential Growth and other websites which is not related to the Book thought

The problem is when time passed you forget what is related to the Book thought, what do you do so you know the thoughts are connected to the Book?

On my Brain, I would make Population Growth a child of Population and a jump link to Book, then write a quick note in Book "How quickly do populations grow?" This way I can see that the two are related, and I know what originally prompted me to link Population Growth.

Depends on your way of working :

- "Population" is a thought, everything related to it is in the Notes
- "Population" is a parent thought, everything related to it is a child thought

of course, if you have many thoughts referencing books, then you might be tempted to have a Thought "Books".

Personally, I tend to prefer a graphical approach - meaning everything is a thought.
I create two thoughts subtrees : DATA and METADATA, so I can crossreference correctly.
Thought categorisation in TheBrain is one my greatest impediments to using it in all my work.
A lot of time is required to plan your thought organization if you want to keep it crystal-clear.
