Notes should be atomic

Atomic notes are superior to long rambling ones. You need to quickly encapsulate a concept and easily refer back to it. Short notes act as nodes in a network, creating a hyperlinked web of thought.

A note captures the essential parts of an idea. If an idea develops, it should be added to a new note. This is one of the guiding principles of the Zettlekasten.

It's important to avoid the collectors fallacy.

This is a meta-note
