Author:Alan Selby
Description: Not seeing the difference between one and two-way implications is a common source of confusion in reading, writing and mathematics. One-way implication rules can sometimes be put together to get further implication rules. One and two-way implications can also be joined; ways in which this can be done are described by analogies with one- and two-way streets and doors. These analogies indirectly describe how rule-based knowledge is put together. In particular, rule-based knowledge is divided into separate segments. Each segment cannot be reached from another by chains of reason.
