    Thanks for jumping in. Whenever people get down to incompatible definitions,
    progress is difficult.

    I hope I was clear that I do not disagree with Rod's definition. If that
    wasn't clear, I apologize. I accept that Rod's definition is a valid one. It
    just doesn't fit in with my (admittedly limited) understanding of the DKR
    concept. Brains like consistency and they will sometimes make stuff up for
    consistency's sake. For me, knowledge is something that will exist in a DKR.
    My idea of knowledge isn't much more than putting words in that acronym.
