    • How it works
      • {{query: {and: [[TODO]] 
                   {or: [[Example]] [[Demo]]}}}}
        will return all TODOs 
         that are not also tagged with Example or Demo
      • TODOs which are not Demos or Examples {{query: {and: TODO {not: {or: Demo Example}}}}}

      • How to write Queries in Roam

        • There are three logical operators
          • and
          • or
          • not
        • A query can look for block or page references
        • Queries look like this
        • { {{or: or: | not: | and:}} {{or: 65J8uNv6D} | Example]}} }
        • but they can compose
          • so you can have
            • {{query: {and: [[Questions]] {not: [[important]]}}}}
              • gets you Questions that are not important
              • gets you blocks that are tagged with backlinks OR precise links
