Nodism is a philosophy born from Object Oriented Programming but accessible to all. Even if you have not coded, let’s think about it for a second —coders use logic to make GAMES, SIMULATIONS and AI.
Games, simulations and Artificial Intelligence model life. The logical modeling of life is called Philosophy. Coders are practicing philosophy.
- The philosophy is called Nodism.
- Followers are part of the Nodist Colony!
This guide will take you through the history and basics of Nodism.

Both can be described by hierarchy diagrams so a large part of Nodism is the study of hierarchy and how it is used in all disciplines.
Nodism also recognizes thought as being physical, so even as we classify, there is composition…
