Non-linear full-2d writing (again)

First off - has anyone made progress on this since I first brought it
up in Mayish?

Second, a few specific points for pondering:
* how to have sememes that overlap or intertwine?
* how to have the 'web' interconnected at higher-order levels (e.g.
paragraph plus)?
 - would probably require that the subparts be semantically connected somehow...
* how to show a conversation or interplay of ideas?
 - how to deal with converting, or obviating, the temporal-sequential
nature of normal conversation?
 - perhaps have one color per speaker, & some point-counterpoint
relationships of sememes - so it looks like a normal web, except

... Any others that y'all have thought up or philosiphized about since
the last big NLF2DWS threads?

Personally, I still find it very difficult to think about sufficiently
to get an idea of what it would look like concretely; I have some
abstract ideas of how I'd want it to work (still very much like
Heptapod B in skeleton) but no way of even sketching an example.
