Knowledge Paradigm

The Knowledge Modeling Architecture Paradigm (MAP) and especially its Knowledge Modeling Semantics Architecture Paradigm (SAP) require the support and logical infrastructure of a solid integrated and generalized Knowledge Architecture Paradigm (KAP), based on natural logic principles and patterns, which is what this second logical layer is about. Supported by the REMMS Knowledge Processing Architecture Paradigm (PAP) framework, the KAP provides knowledge definitions and architecture.

Cosmic Knowledge
Knowledge predates humans by tens of billions of years. To evolve, the cosmos needs to learn and build on its knowledge. Of course, all beings have and use knowledge but they are not alone, as so do particles that learn how to develop more complex elements and compounds.

Natural Languages
The point here is that trying to understand knowledge from “natural” human languages can be very misleading. Human languages evolved from habits, conventions, and traditions of humans intuitively trying to feel their way to communication. Natural languages can carry a lot of knowledge but their structure and syntax are far from the natural and fundamental structure of knowledge.

Natural Logic
To better understand knowledge and its architecture we do not necessarily have to go back to the origin of the universe but it is important to start with fundamental natural logic and not from complex and arbitrary human conventions.

The knowledge architecture tool knowledge paradigm layer is really the main focus of this document so many sections are directly relevant. This section focuses on summarizing some of the basic concepts that are more directly related.

Minds and computers only know, manage, and share information which is naturally identified, classified, and qualified into resources that map everything, including concepts, things, objects, properties, relations, facts, beings, processes, etc.

Principles and Patterns
This section also summarizes and restates some of the basic knowledge principles and patterns presented in Knowledge Architecture Basic Principles and Patterns.

This section picks a few basic knowledge definitions from the Knowledge Architect Glossary. Knowledge Architecture Glossary.

As is typical throughout the document/site, the logic flow follows the order of the titles in the menus and we recommend, at least initially, following them in sequence. As usual, feedback is appreciated.
