Why a Serendipitous Space?

The Japanese phrase: 'Ichi Go Ichi E' means - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity...

1. Most fundamental scientific discovery is generated by accident.

Serendipity is therefore a major research tool.
(See Paul Feyerabend's 'Against Method' (external link))
Epistemology based research shows that many potentially beneficial opportunities are missed because the research team rejected a result that did not meet their expectations.
These unexpected (accidental?) events are then washed away as 'waste' knowledge to be disposed of.

2. Significant amounts of knowledge is generated out of sync

This means that it is not available at the time required.
Knowledge generated earlier or later is lost as there is no secure method of representing or storing it.

3. Knowledge generated in one domain is not readily available in another domain.


To tackle the problems outlined above a Serendipitous Space is required.
Serendipitous Space ensures that accidents are creatively generated on purpose. custom term papers (external link)
It also ensures that knowledge generated out of sync is stored in a readily accessible manner using epistems, i.e knowledge trees.

Serendipic opportunity is, by far, the most creative method for quality knowledge generation.

This ensures that knowledge is not missed by the users of the Serendipitous Space.

The Evolutionary Epistemology Tool-set, Sagacious Forest, has embedded at its core 'Serendipitous Lake' to ensure that serendipitous knowledge is retained and harvested.

Word Web (external link) defines serendipitous as Lucky in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries.
By generating your own Serendipitous Space you create your own luck. (see Richard Wiseman (external link))
