Wikimergic is derived from the Emergic Approach to unified cognitive modeling. As a product, it forms a wiki and tool that can be used for unifying analysis and synthesis. More importantly, it can demonstrate a coherence of complex distributed conceptions. As a research line of inquiry, one asks how to make the most effective tool for the socializing of unification. David started Wikimergic in 2013.
Wikimergic is a top level WikiSilo, i.e., at level 1. Both are theories, methodologies, frameworks, tools and approaches for collaboratively unifying science. However, a WikiSilo is a minimalist and pure epistemology unconcerned with the nature of reality, while Wikimergic is used for explaining change, behaviour and time based on a fundamental mathematical/linguistic underpinning of open-form thinking.
Wikimergic houses the entire Emergic Approach, while WikiSilo house a compatible but minimalist outgrowth of the Emergic Approach. The root level WikiSilo (named Wikisilo) currently houses only WikiSilo theory, while Wikimergic is a top-level WikiSilo underneath vying for ultimate acceptance.
Wikimergic also houses WikiECM as a 2nd level WikiSilo, as the abstract is always better informed with a concrete model. So currently, Wikimergic has cognitive modeling examples, even though it is directed to unifying all of science in particular, and all decisions making in general (all of academia).
- The Emergic Approach was loosely formulated as an epistemology for unifying cognitive modeling. The Emergic Cognitive Model was a scientific theoretical product of the approach.
- Wikimergic was a disciplining tool for documenting the Emergic Approach, but it included the future ECM and WikiSilo portions.
- WikiSilo was spawned off as a minimalist disciplining and unifying epistemizing for all of science. If Wikisilo.org contained the master root level 0 WikiSilo, then Wikimergic became a top level 1 WikiSilo, and WikiECM a 2nd level WikiSilo. Wikimergic did not yet have the fundamental open-form thinking component.
- Wikimergic becomes a general open-form thinking for science, academia and general learning and decision making,
