Kbase Thing

Thing is the “universal collection”: the collection which, by definition, contains everything there is. Every individual object, every other collection. Everything that is represented in the Knowledge Base (“KB”) and everything that could be represented in the KB. Cyc is designed to support representing any imaginable concept in a form that is

  1. immediately compatible with all other representations in the KB, and
  2. directly usable by computer software.
