Imagine being able to do anything your mind can imagine, well now it can..
The 6th Normal Form is not a TERM.. it is a GOAL.. the "holy Grail" if you will of data management and more importantly "Information" management.. Imagine being able to Store IDEAS as opposed to disconnected bits of data..
A brief "INCORRECT" comment on WIKI.. "A relvar R [table] is in sixth normal form (abbreviated 6NF) if and only if it satisfies no nontrivial join dependencies at all — where, as before, a join dependency is trivial if and only if at least one of the projections (possibly U_projections) involved is taken over the set of all attributes of the relvar [table] concerned.[Date et al.]["
The TRUE definition of 6th Normal form is OBJECT Database.. where each and every piece of information/data is ATOMIC in nature and can be associated with any other piece of data/information, and thus NO restrictions.. NO constraints.. NO tables, NO Rows, NO VIEWS, NO CUBES... the correct term is "ASSOCIATIVE DATABASE" or Information system as it is in 3 dimensions by default.. and technically (N) dimensions
the advantages are thus:
100x SQL/ROW/TABLE speed
1/3 disk space
1 EXABYTE capacity - Single instance storage.. (no piece of data is ever duplicated)
Security - Un-hackable - there is nothing to hack into
NO QUERIES - we use filtering
NO TABLES - thus no indexing to worry about
Automated data aggregation - as many sources as required..
and that is just the start.. ;-)
let me know if you are interested in seeing it.. ? as a scientist. I think you would find it fascinating.. Data warehouses have met their match
send me your external email and I will send you more info if you like, and yes this is going to market as we speak ..
I have posted a video that explains & demos a great deal, but If you want more information, I can add you to my Dropbox.com shared folder ifyou would like more information and a video is available there as well
