§ 000.21: Formatting


This job (library clerk) trained me in the value of collating material. It gave me an excellent foundation for my work in the FBI where it has been necessary to collate information and evidence.

- J. Edgar Hoover, 1951


The SLCS.US4CC format essentially suggests a six-part separation of government in accordance with the main partitions of civil law, which preliminary deliberation has determined to be: sovereignty, martial, diplomacy, commerce, trust, and property law. Within these partitions, the traditional three-parts of courts, legislatures, and executive administration and security departments are organized and aligned. In comparison, the subsisting system is structured in accordance with the three phases (parts) of processing law, which has an (in)adequate alignment between the courts and the security divisions, and between the legislative oversight committees and security divisions. The SLCS.US4CC suggests that there is a precise alignment that can be constructed that will provide for a more efficient and reliable structure that can be convertible to all levels of government, and scalable for varying municipal populations by providing reliable paths of consolidation, or expansion thereof, of the courts and office billets.

§ 000.211: Collation

Collation is the organization of information into an order that is applicable to the user's needs. Collation is a fundamental aspect of office filing systems, library catalogs, and reference books. We are most familiar with collation systems that are based on alphabetical order, such as dictionaries and encyclopedias; however, such an order is very limited in its utility.

§ 000.212: Secular Library General Collation

The Secular Library Chartering System (SLCS) exercises a collation that is derivative of a collation theory that is based on primary states of existence for organizing a knowledge classification system, which challenges the qualities of the Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress classification systems for organizing book shelves based on subjects of knowledge. The Secular Library General Collation (SLGC) theory lists the primary states of existence in a base-7 outline style:

0. process (subject)

  1. systems (supporting details/subject)
  2. applications (supporting details/subject)
  3. individuations (supporting details/subject)
  4. organizations (supporting details/subject)
  5. doctrinations (supporting details/subject)
  6. collations (supporting details/subject)

This list of primary states of existence are semantic cues to determine the subordinate topics of the primary subject. These semantic cues are very similar to the “who, what, where, when, why, and how,” system of cues for gathering information concerning an event. In fact, the "five w's" of detective work can be collated with the SLGC theory.

0. event (primary subject)

  1. what (supporting details)
  2. how (supporting details)
  3. where (supporting details)
  4. who (supporting details)
  5. why (supporting details)
  6. when (supporting details)

The primary application of the SLGC is a knowledge classification system that challenges the qualities of the subsisting library classification systems; the Dewey Decimal, and Library of Congress classification systems used for organizing the subjects for the bookshelves in the libraries. The general subjects list using the SLGC is rendered as knowledge realms of reality:

0. Reality

  1. Nature
  2. Technology
  3. Life
  4. Society
  5. Culture
  6. Time

The subsequent hierarchy follows the semantic cue list of the SLGC to render the subsequent list of categories, subcategories, and subjects. Because the SLC is a recent generation and development, the subsequent hierarchy listing of subjects is incomplete relative to the past century of development of the Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress systems; but it is important to notice that the general public does not memorize the general categories lists of the traditional systems, and that the general list of the Secular Library system seems to be easier to memorize, and that is the solution to a problem that library science scholars have been trying to solve that the general public did not know existed.

§ 000.214: Secular Library Charter System (SLCS)

The SLGC derivative for the Secular Library Charter System (SLCS) used for collating and organizing the contents of corporate and government charters is a list of semantic cues as follows:

0. sovereignty (primary subject)

  1. jurisdiction (supporting details)
  2. prosecution (supporting details)
  3. diplomacy (supporting details)
  4. commerce (supporting details)
  5. trust (supporting details)
  6. property (supporting details)

Although, most people will recognize the legal terms, it is understandable that the proposed utility for this list makes little sense to the legal practitioners, much less, the novice citizen. But essentially, this is a reliable list for organizing the basic rules for organizing the charters and legal code in such a manner to avoid the problems that previous composers of charters and legal codes encountered that are never discussed in civics classes, because similarly to the library classification dilemma of the systems' lack of enhancing the students comprehension of the demarcation of subjects, it would be very inconvenient to explain that there is no standard format for organizing government charters, and that that is a multifaceted problem with government that ultimately leads to the inadequacies in government that nefarious persons exploit; and ultimately trickles down to form the social disorderliness, or otherwise irrational deliberation of social issues, that we endure.

The primary problem that honest composers of charters encountered was that they did not know if their compositions covered all subsequent aspects of the directive systems that they were designing to organize government institutions and services. Dishonest composers were well aware of the inadequacies of their compositions and exploited the inadequacies for their corruption schemes playing on the simple-mindedness of the constituent people, and of course, the oppression of non-white people. The resulting inadequacies made by the honest composers also provided routes of corruption, political malarkey, or failures of the government to provide adequate services; which are subsequently, amended forming expansion of government that we are supposed to be weary.

The SLCS collation list guides the charter composer(s) of the possible subsequent directive systems to prevent the possible inadequacies.

Following the format list of cues The SLCS.US4CC.template orders charters into a preamble and six acts of convention:

0. Preamble

  1. Sovereignty
  2. Justice
  3. Liberty
  4. Economics
  5. Finance
  6. Documentation

The preamble and each act of convention is comprised of seven primary articles. The seven primary articles are then subdivided into six secondary articles for a total of 294 articles. The subsequent sections and subsections of the hierarchy are constructed in the six division format. There are usually no articles or sections with numerals 7, 8, or 9; however, the introductory article does use the superfluous enumeration to provide further introduction of the system: sections 7 and 8 of the introductory article (preamble template) list the table of contents for the preamble articles and the articles of the six acts of convention, and then section 9 introduces the copyrights for the template.

Early speculation suggests that the superfluous enumeration may be used to describe different adaptations of the charter template/candidate between the (7) municipal, (8) state, and (9) national.

Practitioners of the charter template are welcome to innovate possible use of the unused enumeration ordering for the advanced composing of their charter proposals.

The Secular Library is dedicated to the establishment of Science, the exercise of Reason, the pursuit of Truth, the understanding of Reality, and the better evolution of Mankind, through the prudent justification of knowledge classification.
