Many enjoy succinct writing. Here are foundational writings on how it is accomplished here and there on the Gold Scales.
What these articles are about
1. The first article is about how to put your reservations in a big bag and say, "these are presupposed!" After than you state what is on your mind as clearly as you can. Clarity comes first, plain wording is a secondary value, and much embellishment takes away from the main messages.
2. Definition helpers: The second article deals with what we call motivations and legitimations or justifications of views.
3. The third article offers a schematic mainframe for putting forth points and key points more cogently than in random order. The grid or mainframe is a structural scheme that is put to use on the site. There are perhaps a hundred examples of how it is applied.
4. The fourth article deals with what may be called good.
5. Article five deals with four kinds of discernments, or four modes of logic, that are embedded in the structural, unfolding trek, and also tells why this newly developed 'tick tack tao' system is intended as a help to blossom and perhaps bear fruit in time too, if things go well.

7. Article seven concludes the collection. It shows how a nose profile can be used as a mnemonic device to tell of the system in a simple way to children, youngsters, and adults alike. The article is rounded off by telling how to form poetry on top of tick tack tao scenarios - any of them, according to the metre that is given. An example is given.
