you see, new 'evidence' comes up all the time. not sure if ontologies (as
far as I know, as we know them today) are capable of being updated at the
frequency rate that new knowledge is generated/published

I suspect, if new evidence cannot be taken into account,
then the reasoning can be obsolete one minute from the next
