Page a:
```
# Ilias

The Iliad begins with the wrath of Achilles.
```

Page b:
```
# Wrath
A boiling of the blood around the heart…
```

In DT3 and VP:
Whilst reading page A, I can go to b (Wrath).

In Roam:
There is no link to page B, since Page B never mentions the “Iliad”. While reading page A, I can only see what other pages mention it. I can’t simply go to every other possible location I would in other systems.


I hope this makes sense.
