    I don't think an optimal DKR will lead to "truly equal distribution of
    knowledge." There are plenty of books on string theory at my disposal in
    the good ol' public library, and yet, I don't think any physicists out
    there are worried about me infringing on their territory.

    For augmentation to happen, there is still a human learning cycle. Thanks
    to the massive amount of information currently out there, I can certainly
    learn new subjects faster than previously. However, my brain is still a
    bottleneck. It has better and faster access to information, but it
    doesn't process it any faster.
