Hi Axel and group,

My comment: This is certainly much better than knowledge = info, and is
enough to illustrate that there is a big difference. I think you have
caught the essence of certified expertise; a well digested practical and
basic theoretical understanding of one's field (such as that required of a
pilot.) Yet, for knowledge I would also consider to add as "independent"
variables among other things: imagination, analogy, intuition, genetics,
intelligence, passion (makes knowledge more accessible and dynamic),
values (drive the use), the ratio of formal vs. tacit knowledge (the
former is firmer and more transferable) ....
