Ok, but in this case do you mean "loss of knowledge" as in "loss of knowledge harbored within the brain" or "loss of knowledge no matter where it's stored, be it a book, brain, text file... etc" ?

Further more, does losing copies of a certain piece of knowledge count as loss of knowledge ? What about translations of said knowledge (in another language or another philosophical/mathematical framework) that doesn't add any new information, just makes it accessible to a larger demographic ?
