I've read 16 of 32 tutorials at http://www.opencyc.org/doc/
and mapped CycL concepts to KR concepts http://www.volcano.net/~rhm/knowledge/theory/CycL/CycLvsKR.txt

The CycL microtheory BaseKB corresponds to the KR context tabula rasa.
BaseKB is about 2 times the size of tabula rasa 
because it explicitly names about 350 microtheories that depend on it.

About 50 important CycL microtheories are given at http://www.cyc.com/cycdoc/vocab/vocab-toc.html
