Knowledge Architect/Basics/Structure

Knowledge, Resources, and Qualities

Knowledge is immensely vast, distributed, growing, and evolving.

Minds need to compare, qualify, and process entities that break or split knowledge into qualified “chunks”.

In order to be recognized, these manageable knowledge “chunks” require some basic prerequisite qualities.

The most fundamental of these qualities, as noted before, is identification, as if it cannot be identified, it cannot be addressed, referenced, or managed.

Identification is also typically not a simple quality, like just a name or identifier, but rather a compound quality combining identities and classes.

Accordingly, classification is the second most fundamental quality type, right after identification. In fact, classification is a common identification specialization allowing knowledge “chunks” to be better identified, defined, and associated.

Knowledge Resources
Once identified and classified, at least to some degree, knowledge “chunks” become manageable knowledge resource, and the fundamental structures of knowledge.

Knowledge Resource Definition
Resources can now be simply defined as identifiable and classifiable quality collections.

Knowledge Resource Scope
Knowledge resources map all things, systems, components, beings, concepts, relations, dreams, feelings, phenomena, or other, that have ever been, are, and will ever be known, small or large, simple or complex, physical or virtual or other.

Knowledge Architecture Definition
Knowledge architecture can now also be defined as the art and science of understanding, acquiring, structuring, modeling, managing, transforming, and sharing knowledge resources, typically in the pursuit of set goals and objectives, that are typically related to productivity optimization and maximization.

As the most fundamental building block of knowledge and knowledge resources, qualities require somewhat closer considerations, which is what the sub-sections of this section attempt, and focus on, first considering the nature of qualities, as well as some of their main function types.
