VERY IMPORTANT: I should state very very clearly what it is that I am doing. Also that a huge majority of the code is software engineer code, and that code poetry are just distinctly related.

recs from guido, neuropsychologists who might be interested:

séminaire adrien puignot: principe de la sémiotique sociale, i.e. la fabrique de sens globale.

architexte: L’ensemble des catégories générales, ou transcendantes -types de discours, modes d’énonciation, genres littéraires, etc.- dont relève chaque texte singulier (genette). En gros, la méta-catégorie des catégories. Ce qui gouverne le texte. L’outil d’écriture n’est pas neutre, il impose des formes éditoriales et des formats d’écriture au scripteur. Il permet aussi la recomposition des “traces” de lecture (échange, co-construction, démantèlement)

infra-ordinaire: infra-ordinaire en tant qu’observation attentive de « ce qui se passe chaque jour et revient chaque jour, le banal, le quotidien, l’évident, le commun, l’ordinaire, l’infra-ordinaire, le bruit de fond, l’habituel. l’attention portée aux détails du réel apparaît comme une constante qui finira par devenir une théorie rassemblant la pensée et la pratique littéraires de l’auteur

add this to examples, from the rust parser example i forked, as an example of how people assign quality to proper scale naming:

rust // Level-change Operator (what a stupid name) operator_level = { operator_exp | operator_subscript | operator_exp ~ operator_subscript | operator_subscript ~ operator_exp }

quote from peter neumann: “these techniques may have enormous value in providing nontrivial assurances that the system might actually do what is expected of it . “ - “There are many problems arising in complex systems that must be thoroughly comprehended, but that once understood can be structured in a way that conceptually simplifies the design”

Include the fact that aesthetics help compress, and by compressing, people can hold more things in short term memory

include somehow:

```text struct

Brenda Baker undertook her Fortan-to-Ratfor converter against the advice of her department head–me. I thought it would likely produce an ad hoc reordering of the orginal, freed of statement numbers, but otherwise no more readable than a properly indented Fortran program. Brenda proved me wrong. She discovered that every Fortran program has a canonically structured form. Programmers preferred the canonicalized form to what they had originally written. ```

overall, I should keep in mind that I do not have a technical audience, and I should rework/remove a lot of the examples, and add extensive discussions and rationale as to why those examples are there

I should also address the status of AI-generated code (include, not include? I consider it the same as compiler code).

For Languages of Art, two things about exemplification vs. implementation:

In architecture, highlight the fact that the detail is the point of interaction between the human and the structure.

chap 3 - beauty

tex % \begin{align} % \sqrt{2} & = p / q \\ % \sqrt{2} * q & = p \\ % p & = \sqrt{2} * q \\ % (\sqrt{2})^2 & = (p/q)^2 \\ % 2 & = p^2 / q^2 \\ % p^2 & = 2 * q^2 % \end{align}

side note: are metaphors related to space because it’s hard for us to think in terms of time?

chap 2 - understanding

Also, Fuller’s taxonomy, derived from Bloom’s taxonomy. It is represented by two semi-independent dimensions, Producing and Interpreting. Each dimension defines hierarchical linear levels where a deeper level requires the competencies from the previous ones. Producing has three levels (None, Apply, and Create) and Interpreting has four (Remember, Understand, Analyze, and Evaluate). \citep{fuller_developing_2007}

intrinsic characteristics of cs:

chap 1 - ideals


There is also a broad definition of what aesthetic is, and is different from beautiful, which also elicits an emotional response, or gut feeling, and can be implied in definitions of what is artistic. so i don’t talk about beauty, but about code which exhbitis positive aesthetic properties—finding beautiful code in an art history sense has not been achieved. -
