As of this moment, there seem to be three potential superclasses of knowledge that I'm aware of:



  1. Hard facts - Facts that are knowable by anyone, and that exist independently of the viewer.

  2. Inter-personal facts - Facts that are a product of a particular outlook or perception, and that are dependent on the viewpoint of the viewer.

  3. Personal facts - Facts that exist within a single mind.


The three superclasses can then be cross-associated with two other superclasses of ontology that I can think of:



  1. Objective facts - Facts that exist independent of a viewer

  2. Subjective facts - Facts that depend on a viewer


... The result would be a set with six potential values of classification:



  1. Hard, objective fact - 2 + 2 = 4

  2. Hard, subjective fact - It's too cold (in Montreal, in January) to run around naked outside (if you're a human).

  3. Objective, inter-personal fact - Pork isn't kosher.

  4. Subjective, inter-personal fact - (We think) It's the greatest thing ever!

  5. Objective, personal fact - I'm sad. :-(

  6. Subjective, personal fact - I think that colour is closer to green than blue...
