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.
You can draw, make collages instead of having just words and concepts.
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 http://www.arbredespossibles.com
