Subject Predicate Object

The "final" version of the comparison between RDF, OWL, mKR
is "published" on my web site
There are no big surprises here -- just a more thorough mapping.
I have specifically named the four statements of greatest interest
s1::    subject property value.
s2::    subject property object.
s2a::    individual type class.
s2b::    species subClassOf genus.
and have carefully mapped all of the concepts
Thing, Nothing, Resource
Class, Property
type, subClassOf
List, Set, oneOf, Seq, Bag, Alt
existent, nonexistent
entity, attribute, binary relation
isu, iss, iss*,  has, rel
list, set, enum

What may surprise you is the scope of spo.mkr.
I decided to outline the full TABULA RASA context
(but with no details on many concepts, e.g., actions).
You should note that s1, s2, s2a, s2b are a very small part
of the big picture.

I promise a thorough treatment of spo.cyc in the near future.
Separating the contexts which Cyc has merged together
will be the most difficult part of my task.
But now that I have easy access to the Cyc Upper Ontology
the work should go fairly quickly.
