This is a search engine that gives a chain of described links
rather than a single link with a single title per find.
Each search-result will be a chain of links, each link with its
text explaining the relevance of the topic.
If you are looking for the connection between Talmudic
in Aramaic and phrase2 in classical Greek, each result
will be a chain of links, showing how phrase1 in Aramaic is
connected in the end to phrase2 in Greek.
phrase1 links to -> phraseB1 - which is found in the same text
as phrase1 and both are in Aramaic.
phraseB1 links to -> phraseB2 - similar to phraseB1 - but this
time found in text7. But in text7 there is phraseC still in
Aramaic which links phrase1 to phraseC.
a few steps later we arrive at phrase2 in Greek, after passing
through phrases in documents make the connection between
the Aramaic and the Greek. QED.
The next result has a different path (a different chain of
phrases) that leads from phrase1 to phrase2.
You can supply several phrases, so phrase1 must reach
phrase2 by going through several stops on the way. ie.
phrase3 and phrase4.
The interface is similar to google search, but with multiple
search boxes. It finds connections between topics rather than
single documents. So it can point twice to the same link but
with a different summary in the chain.
It gives a list of chained paths through documents from one
phrase to another. Each document found in the path is
summarised with a phrase as well, so the result is similar to a
LOW: israeli -> israeli digging -> chabad -> prophecy of
diamonds -> mention: chinese prosperity -> china diamond
import -> mention: african diamonds
HIGH: chinese -> australia kimberly convention -> taiwan
expelled from convention -> taiwan largest diamond importer
-> israel-taiwan relations -> israel purchasing diamonds from
taiwanese businesspeople -> (specific israeli company) ->
(specific chinese trader in israeli company)
HIGH: chinese -> india -> indian diamond exporters looking
beyond china -> china and hong kong the major market for
indian diamond export -> israeli special status for Indian
diamond traders -> israeli diamond traders -> (specific
-> (specific trader name)
It can cut out casual mentions in advertisements, with the
help of a human community of researchers, and special
search-words like "-noads"
It can differentiate between fields like "-diff:china,hong-
Excluding ads would look something like this:
X chinese -> [ads: chinese diamonds] -> israel's rough diamond
exports -> israeli -> african diamonds
X chinese -> red diamonds -> [ads: israeli settelments] ->
This was meant to be an example, not a discussion about the
blood diamond and the arms industry, sadly with my country
and people's deep involvement.
I'm moving out the rest of what I wrote into an annotation,
because it is a discussion about the example, and not about
As another example, if I wish to find the connection between
the originally Arabic phrase written by Maimonides: "And hear
the truth from whoever spoke it" with the Greek philosophers'
idea that the truth is independent of its speaker.
I start from one text, and through translation reach other
similar texts. The chain of resulting phrases (linked to where
they came from) is given in each result line.
