I am now wondering whether this technique similar to or different from
a technique used by persons in interdisciplinary fields who utilize
research from various systems of research. It's difficult for me to
describe, but when one is drawing together research from various
fields, there is a sort of mental juggling act wherein one must
evaluate each piece of research within the context and the methodology
under which it was conducted, and simultaneously bring those pieces
together into a coherent connecting concept. Maybe I am describing
parallel processing, because there is a sensation of shifting back
and forth between two tracks of thought, but conceptually I tend to
view it as a fractal construction.

Yes, no, maybe?
