If you look at some physical object near you now, what you *know* about it can be modeled with: - numbers (mass, size, shape, position, ...) - relationships (owner, maker, components, ingredients, manufacturing process, maybe relative position...) - some attached code (maybe in a script attached to its class, say, a class or scala-like trait of physical objects that says what happens when you throw it, etc) ...but you don't have to be an engineer to know those things (doesn't hurt, I realize). Hopefully one won't have to be an engineer to record them in a structured enough way. Now imagine if all our knowledge were in such a system, not dependent primarily on human language (such as, say historical knowledge, some physics & chemistry, all kinds of familial or geographical relationships etc etc), and imagine the kinds of queries we could then run on such a system.
