So for now this is mainly the research along with some comments and

observational. So more work is needed to define
cause-and-effect relationships, as well as, other
contributing factors that would help explain the
information more clearly. This website acts as a kind of
Cognitive Dissonance and Cognitive bias, so
unintentionally it filters out ignorance, which for the
moment might discourage some people from reading more and learning
This is a problem that will be corrected, because

several things at once
How this project began
"If you can't explain it
simply, you don't understand it well enough."
I'm fully aware that I'm working on something that 99%
of the people can't understand, which is not bad because that means that
70 million people on this planet should know enough to understand this
project. Though knowledge and
information has been here since the beginning, people
don't fully understand what knowledge and information
really means. People understand the benefits of a good
education, but people have no idea what a good education
is supposed to be. So no matter where I start this
conversation, I know I must start off with questions
that can reveal how much knowledge a person has, then I
could use that information to communicate with that
person. You have to know the language a person speaks,
then you can either learn their language, or, you can
teach them your language. But I know that it will be a
lot easier to learn your language first, before I can
even begin to teach you
the language of knowledge and information.
It's like I climbed a mountain and I'm trying to
describe what I saw and experienced. But the only way to see what I saw is
for you to climb that mountain. And the mountain is a symbol for all the
knowledge and information that I have acquired, which is organized on
BK101. The majority of what you need to know is here, the rest we still
need to learn. So I can get you to the mountain top and open your eyes,
but what you see depends on how much you learned on the way up. And those
differences in what we see is where our learning journey continues. So we
need to go back down the mountain and see where on the trail that
particular information was skewed or misinterpreted. Then we climb the
mountain again, except this time our ascension is a lot faster and a lot
easier, which is the power of knowledge and learning at its finest.
Research - Unbiased Analysis
Independent Studies are extremely important.
Autodidacticism (autodidactism or self-education) is
the act of
self-directed learning about a subject or subjects
in which someone has had little or no formal education. Many
notable contributions have been made by autodidacts.
Like, Leonardo da Vinci, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison,
The Wright Brothers, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Darwin,
Michael Faraday, Benjamin Franklin and Jimi Hendrix, as
well as many others.
Independent studies provide a way for well-motivated
people to pursue a topic of interest that does not
necessarily fit into a traditional hobby, activity or
academic curriculum. Independent studies also provide
students and people with opportunities to explore their
interests deeper and make important decisions about how
and where they will direct their talents in the future.
Research includes the formulation of questions and
answers, with the goal to
develop and present a product
service. The research may also be used to advance
further research into a particular subject that will be
performed by other
people. So don't ever under estimate the value of
research. Just because it seems that nothing will come
from your particular research, does not mean that it
will not have some value in the future. As proven
throughout history with many
scientific discoveries and research.
You could easily teach yourself from this information

priority is to create a complete

my life comes second, not to say
that those other priorities in my
life are not important, because they
are, it's just that the main
priority is so much more important.
At times some of the planning and

illogical and ineffective, but at
other times, the planning looks more

fully understanding what you see is
a other. We have learned from
history that a lot ideas start out

in the beginning, even when they are

But you still have to define which
parts look questionable to you. What
parts do you think are right? What
parts do you think are wrong? If
something doesn't look right, then
you should bring it to the attention
of others, and then explain why you
think something is right or wrong.

1: Continue collecting valuable
knowledge and information and organizing everything into
an education database.
2: Build computerized lessons that will teach people how
to read and write.
3: Build computerized lessons that will teach people how
to comprehend what they read.
The computerized lessons will teach people how to read
using the most valuable words in their chosen language,
words that would give a person a better understanding of
themselves and the world around them. Then make sure
that all people have access to the worlds most valuable

4: Expand computerized lessons to cover all important
5: Convert all Wikipedia links in BK101 into PDF's.

a single jump drive.
6: Continue to work on creating

7: Continue the research on how to make education to be
the highest quality, and to be the most effective and
efficient as possible.
8: Create the ultimate

. The typical expert system consisted of a knowledge base
and an inference engine. The knowledge base stored facts about the world.
The inference engine applied logical rules to the knowledge base and
deduced new knowledge. This process would iterate as each new fact in the
knowledge base could trigger additional rules in the inference engine.
Inference engines work primarily in one of two modes either special rule
or facts: forward chaining and backward chaining. Forward chaining starts
with the known facts and asserts new facts. Backward chaining starts with
goals, and works backward to determine what facts must be asserted so that
the goals can be achieved.
