We started with the Zachman framework.†
Figure 1:† The most abstract form of the Zachman Framework
One provides a description of a situation by filling in each of the cells of the framework.†
In the theory of categoricalAbstraction (cA) and eventChemistry (eC) we have that the fillers are potential atoms of event compounds, slots serve to provide the binding of atoms into the event compound and the script (or framework) is in fact the relationship between atoms.
The Generalized Framework (GF) has the form of a n tuple:
< situation, a(1), a(2), . .† . , a(n) >
The n-tuple has n atoms and one relationship, so we are defining this is a non-standard fashion.† The relationship is not counted (or one might think of the counting as starting at 0 rather than 1).
Now suppose that we have looked at a number of relationships.† By this it is natural to think of the situation as the relationship and the atoms as the constituents of the relationship.† This means that relationship and context are almost the same notion.†
Figure 2: The process flow model of human memory formation, storage and use.
In the draft of Chapter 7 of Foundations of Knowledge Science, Figure 2 appears as a model of human memory formation, storage and use.† The details about minimal intersections and residues are in Chapter 9, on the Millís logic.
The GF serves as the means to categorize the atoms into classes, decompose the situations into n-tuples and rout the atoms through an associative memory mechanism.†
