This paper is written as a response to an invitation put forth by Jennex and Bartczak to continue the discussion of about the nature and role of the so-called knowledge pyramid given in the 2013 paper "A revised knowledge pyramid," (Jennex and Bartczak, 2013). In this paper, I briefly re-examine the origin of the data-informationknowledge- wisdom (DIKW) pyramid, refute two assertions made to support the Jennex-Bartczak revised pyramid, suggesting that the revised pyramid not be adopted as its own theoretical foundation is weak.
