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 Mill’s 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.
