The Active Thought in TheBrain is located in center of the adjacent navigation screen (plex), and corresponds with the content area where this text is located.
The relative positions of the various thought relationships are described below and highlighted in the plex:
- Child Thought = Below the central, active thought (currently "Thought Relationships")
- Grandchild thoughts display immediately below the child thoughts, when a child thought becomes active.
- Parent Thought = Above the active thought
- Sibling Thought = Right of the active thought & sharing the same parent(s)
- Jump Thought = Left of the active thought (May or may not share the same parent)
The relative importance of these thought relationships correlates with their positions:
- Parent and child thoughts have the closest relationship to the active thought
- Jump thoughts are of secondary importance
- Sibling thoughts have only an indirect relationship to the active thought.
Note: Be sure to keep in mind the relative importance of these thought relationships when the plex is hidden because the relative positions of these thoughts will change.
As you begin exploring DiscoveryNow, I recommend focusing initially on the active thought and its children. Because these thoughts are the most directly related, this will help you review immediately relevant content, without being distracted by adjacent content that may be less relevant, at least initially.
Later on, as you become more comfortable with the display of multiple thoughts within the plex, you can then begin exploring the related parent, jump and sibling thoughts.
