I tend to use a blend of these myself depending on context and requirements. It's good to have a preferred approach but not to worry if sometimes you feel a different pattern is warranted for specific sets of thoughts.Now you got the Worried Frog Cafe in Hong Kong for example. The parents are 'French Restaurant' and 'Hong Kong' and the wider context is 'China', 'Restaurants' and 'France'. Geographically you have location and you have culture whereas topically you have restaurants. To avoid confusion, this example lends itself best I think to having a combination of approaches that occur naturally as per the attached brain example of how i might go about it. From this approach you can see that the contextual environment becomes self reinforcing, logically pointing you in the right direction (that best fits you) on how to setup thought structures and how to retrieve information subsequently by logical association. The other issue is non contextual information retrieval. Look carefully at this thread covering some of the ideas, existing and upcoming capabilities of wildcard and Boolean searches.http://forums.thebrain.com/tool/post/thebrain/vpost?id=1743375A neat trick if you have a lot of French Restaurants and you have a lot of child thoughts of Hong Kong and you just want to swiftly locate French Restaurants in Hong Kong is to make French Restaurants the active thought, control+left mouse the child gate. Now all the child thoughts of French Restaurants will be highlighted. Now make Hong Kong the active thought and you'll clearly see the highlighted French Restaurants visible amongs the child thoughts of Hong Kong.
In my approach; "worried Frog cafe" is in the hierarchical tree "restaurants" and has two jump relations with two other hierarchical trees "geography" and "nationalities"
