Note taking apps

No.12994333 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Beside pen and paper, which of course is the best, what would you anons recommend as a good STEM-oriented note taking app?

I've been using Notion for the longest time now, and I think it's excellent. It's very simple, configurable, and importantly has very nice and seamless LaTeX support.

Is there a better alternative for scientific/mathematical note taking?

>Mary is a brilliant scientist who is, for whatever reason, forced to investigate the world from a black and white room via a black and white television monitor. She specializes in the neurophysiology of vision and acquires, let us suppose, all the physical information there is to obtain about what goes on when we see ripe tomatoes, or the sky, and use terms like 'red', 'blue', and so on. She discovers, for example, just which wavelength combinations from the sky stimulate the retina, and exactly how this produces via the central nervous system the contraction of the vocal cords and expulsion of air from the lungs that results in the uttering of the sentence 'The sky is blue'. (…) What will happen when Mary is released from her black and white room or is given a color television monitor? Will she learn anything or not? It seems just obvious that she will learn something about the world and our visual experience of it. But then is it inescapable that her previous knowledge was incomplete. But she had all the physical information. Ergo there is more to have than that, and Physicalism is false.

how can they ever recover from this?
