Many of us trust our gut feeling implicitly.
We have all been there when something didn’t feel right but done it anyway. There was nothing obvious to suggest that it was a bad idea. Yet, when it turns out to be a disaster we wonder why we didn’t listen to that gentle little voice: “don’t do it.”

At times it might be desirable to determine what storylines on a narrative database contain certain key elements. In the example below, the object “Alien Allan” is used to compile a listing of titles on the database that are in thematic agreement. But rather than simply provide the listing of titles, the algorithm tabulates the key elements contained in these titles. Notice that the most important elements resulting from the search do not necessarily match the elements in the submitted…Continue
