    Cousin  Mork from Ork  and  his  Cousin Quark from Ark
    are preparing a universal knowledge base ...

    They are both rather industrious and
    wish to assimilate, catalog, convert, standardize, and distribute
    ALL  knowledge in  ALL  Universes ...

    The initial plan is to convert old library holdings
    currently in printed book form to electronic media
    via scanning into visual graphic file format
    followed by conversion back into encoded text
    by optical character recognition ...

    Their Cousin Vinny from New Jersey who has a  Mac  AND  a PC
    has proposed using some variation of the following logical structure
    which is nested 24 levels deep as a means to index and process the data
    implemented using his universal  LIP://Library_Index_Protocol  Service...

    Universe
        Galaxy
            Solar_System
                Planet
                    Country
                        State
                            City
                                Street
                                    Address
    Library
        Floor
            Room
                Stack

                            Volume
                                Chapter
                                    Page
                                        Paragraph
                                            Sentence
                                                Word
                                                    Character
                                                        Nibble
                                                            Bit
