This traditional Buddhist doctrine outlines a series of dependencies which underlie the processes of experience - each factor of conscious experience arising in dependence on the previous factor. The traditional presentation of this doctrine is a massive simplification and I wanted to visualise all the little variations and oddities. The diagram both reveals how complex the Canonical accounts are, but presents the information in a way that can be taken in without being overloaded with detail.

I'm pleased with the handling of UNICODE for Pali diacritics (which this forum does not!), and the flexibility of VUE in constructing and laying out a diagram like this. No doubt more can be got from the app, but this is really helpful for me in conceptualising my work!

I've now updated this map substantially. Have discovered more of the formatting options as well - aligning node sizes, columns and rows etc.

I think this is an amazing contribution to Buddhist understanding, not to mention an awesome use of VUE! Thank you!

Reminds me of cell signaling, the intracellular communications network! [urlhttp://www.cellsignal.com/pathways/jak-stat.jsp[/url] Come to think of it, cell signaling pathways are concept maps. The ones from that company's website has the added feature that when you click on a node, it lights up. Cool.
