### Good idea - introducing some finer distincitions between simple sensory
input versus products of initial sentient processing.
"Knowledge is a set of organized statements of facts or ideas, presenting
a reasoned judgment or an experimental results, which is transmitted to
others through some commnication medium in some systematic form. Thus,
I distinguish knowledge from news and entertainment."
### Here I would stick by my own usage - the predictive capacity inherent in
knowledge is what makes it important and different from mere organized
statements. There is not much knowledge in astrology, athough it does meet
the above definition .
