[Crm-sig] Domain and range of P90

Dear All,

I'd like to remind you that RDF-OWL is only a historical phenomenon in 
the history of knowledge representation.
The CRM needs to define semantics that cover E-R, TELOS, KL-One, KIF, 
OIL, DAML-OIL, DL, RDFS, XML, Jason, and whatever will come up. 
Therefore we define it in FOL.

The puzzling gap to primitive values has on one side to do with 
hardware, which cannot cover infinite mathematical spaces. Consequently, 
each machine and encoding convention uses a different subset.

The other difference is deeper: On the machine, you can only use 
identifiers to talk about things. Digital objects themselves can be in 
the machine, but not necessarily are, and all others cannot. This causes 
a semantic gap which is common to all database schemata, and needs to be 
resolved by a series of practical conventions separately for each 
datamodel. It can only be resolved by having an ontology, which in the 
first place makes the distinction, so that it becomes clear, what each 
database schema describes about the world and what description is.

I hope this makes things theoretically clearer: The puzzle is what is 
information itself.
