> Tree Rearrangement
Navigation (Old)This essay has been superseded by a newer version.
Although there was no conscious intent that it should do so, this site has ended up with an organization similar to that of a book. Like a book, this site has the content in the middle, a table of contents on the left, and an index on the right; also, the content consists of a set of pages.
However, unlike a book, the pages in this site are arranged not in a linear sequence but rather in a hierarchy, or tree. The page you see when you first arrive (urticator.net) is the top page of the tree. Underneath the top page are three more pages, Essays, Actors, and Works. Each of these pages, in turn, has more pages underneath it, and so it goes throughout the entire tree.
The table of contents (on the left, remember) reflects the tree structure of the pages. It is intended to be simple and intuitive to use, so at this point I hope you can just play around with it and see how it works. I started to put together a prose explanation, but it looked like it was going to be very tedious to read, and not very useful.
