This is a limitation of the hierarchical tree approach that many of us have run into. 

Also, Connected Text can indeed handle thousands of items, and link them together without limitations, but I wouldn’t say that it provides a way to actually display / visualise those links outside the near vicinity of each item.

I don’t think there are many real solutions to show “both the forest and the trees” aside for zoomable interfaces like Treesheets.
