The knowledge-base image.

A simple demo.
Aka don’t paint an image twice.

for reasons of simplifications the image is black and white only
it is a square
it starts with 1 times 1 pixels


get amount of images of this size
generate one image
if (image is in database) [loop]|wait for next trigger->

if (image is not in database) do store the image Publish
if (amount of images of this size is smaller than the possibities) wait for next trigger->
if (all possible images are generated) increase the width/height by one
calculate the new possibilities
store the amount and the size in the database.

1x1^2 = 2
2x2^2 = 16
3x3^2 = 81
4x4^2 = 256
10x10^2 = 10,000
16x16^2 = 65,535

The Knowledge Base

A knowledge base can be implemented / understood in different ways. It is
a kind of fundament - the base - one will build up ones next
know-how-what-why-and-where etc. It is also used to transit the preception
of the (outer oneself) nature to reality. Again we one use knowledge bases
to realise things into nature - making things, influence.
A transition can be made in both directions.

A knowledge base can be inherit or explicit.
Let’s focus on a example of an explicit knowledge base.

Any lexicon is an explicit knowledge base, if one does consume and (miss-)
understands one or more entries. The usage reading makes the lexicon a
base of (possible) knowledge. Otherwise it is death matter indeed.

A grammar is another structure of knowledge. It does explains and or defines
how to combinate lexical values.

lexical + grammar = (senseful) sentence  
*a sentence should be senseful inherently  

The difference between a grammar and an algorithm - an algorithm can represent both a grammar or a lexical structure or even both together the grammar applied to the lexicals.
