Not true.  Each myView has precisely defined terms.
But I can change myView whenever appropriate.
Thus myKnowledge will have the form    (03)

    at view = v1 { sentence11; sentence12; ...};
    at view = v2 { sentence21; sentence22; ... };
    ...    (04)

myProposition always specifies myView.
Each v1, v2, ... names a list of propositions which define
 the terms of the sentences.    (05)
