a general note of search
search has in terms of navigation - moving along particular patterns that, pending on conditions, can lean into a particular space.
That's what happens when we consider meeting a friend in a cafe and slowly find out which cafe that will be - based on opening times, place, type of brew, atmosphere, etc.

A connected to navigation is exploration. recall that navigational process use particular patterns?

Exploration comes to find possible movements

..along something that could become a pattern.

Like the time one might have been exploring a particular urban area utterly chartlessly - and bumped into a cafe.

Suggesting to meet a friend in that cafe, requires another element of searching - investigating. A reflective process that checks both the explorative and navigational elements of searching.
Investigating will fine-tune the navigational routes, and explorative findings.

The investigative part of a search will check various navigational routes and things to consider while moving.
Our cafe might be very nice indeed, however one access route might have a huge deep puddle after rain.
Has it just rained?
That's a reflective investigative question in context.

Investigation reflects upon exploration as well. How else will we be able to consider making judgements?
This cafe is a place you'd like - another, IDK, and so on. However

I think it gets more Interesting when we consider 2 other elements of search -

conditional and sharing elements.

Cafe is a repeating pattern that attends a particular range of plants, beans, brews and their derivatives.
I am saying Cafe rather than Coffee, precisely because in english there's a difference, some other languages like arabic -


no difference, and yet the sound of K+F in that sequence is so familiar and humanly universal - that we have a general clue as to what's the subject, even if we don't understand the language.

Yet, there was a time when K+F were not entirely a set sequence.

A time when K+F was not the sound attending what we call coffee.
Some may recall that when social media began, there were many more platforms than nowadays.

When the web began, there were more search engines people used before google became the conditioning of internet data access.

Therefore search has an arbitrary searching as an overarching reflective conditioning -
questions from the very condition of, for example, living in a particular space, particular space-type, and having a certain affinity range. these affinities may include coffee and life in an urban space that came into a pattern to
