Clarifying: The tree of possibilities

The mental map approach is used at different levels of research. Here its use is intended to clarify a subject before exploring it.

The use of color is an added value to see more clearly in the word tree. 

It is inspired by Bernard Werber's tree that I invite you to visit on his website
