Seamless integration of individualized and generalized symptoms within one Repertory

Synthesis maintained its Kentian structure and origin until version 8. Most symptoms were individualizing symptoms, expressing precise and detailed symptoms with several symptom levels (e.g.: "STOMACH - PAIN - gnawing - noon - eating; after").These symptoms are still written in the same way and located in the same place in Synthesis 9 - nothing has changed there.

The b-bg repertories, on the other hand, offer generalized information (e.g.: "STOMACH - NOON"), which indicates that stomach symptoms of whatever type tend to occur at noon. The corresponding remedies have been added to the new Synthesis rubric "STOMACH - NOON". They have been kept separate from any other specific Synthesis rubrics, such as "STOMACH - PAIN - noon".

In other words: the existing, individualized and known rubrics were left as they were, and new rubrics were created to contain the generalized information of the b-bg repertories.

In some instances the b-bg repertories contain individualized information (e.g.: "STOMACH - ERUCTATIONS - breakfast - after"). The corresponding b-bg remedies were added to the already existing Synthesis rubric.

Almost all b-bg symptoms have been integrated into the known 38 chapters. Within one chapter you will find different levels of generalized-individualized information:
One example, from most general to most individualized:
"STOMACH - NOON"
"STOMACH - PAIN - noon"
"STOMACH - PAIN - cramping - noon"
"STOMACH - PAIN - gnawing - noon - eating; after"

The first striking instance of this integration of b-bg information within the existing chapters is that the chapter MIND now starts with a few generalized b-bg time rubrics ("MIND - DAYTIME", MIND - MORNING", etc.). These are immediately followed by the known and unaltered Synthesis symptoms such as " MIND - ABANDONED", " MIND - ABRUPT", " MIND - ABSENTMINDED", etc.
