Mind Mapping and Decomposition

I find mind mapping a rather simplistic technique as it is based on two basic ideas which underpin analytical thinking. Functional decompostion and classification. These two techniques are inherently dangerouse as they assume things can be neatly classified - OK for ordering a few thoughts. The real world invariably involves messy/wicked problems which mind mapping cannot really deal with. Cognitive mapping is a very much better technique which allows for emergence properties to be explored along with multiple perspectives.

Don't make this more complicated

Well, duh. It's supposed to simplify the wild chaos of thought and speech. What is an emergence property anyway and how does it relate to straightforward problem solving?
