Knowledge

Clearly facts are not knowledge.  We do not have knowledge until we have organization.   A possible world is an organization of ideas and facts.  The facts are made intelligible only through the organization.  A telephone book is knowledge only in the most limited sense.  Such sense as it has it acquires through its alphabetical organization.
