  Abstract:   A "theory of universes", or Universics, was developed as a frame-work for integration of disciplines via their universes of discourse. The formal apparatus of Universics is obtained by a revision of set theory, motivated by the necessity to take into account the agents processing sets. This revision lead toentities of a new kind said to be the universes. The content of mind is regarded as a universe built according the atom-aggregation-association, or A3, approach, which in [1] is placed in the foundation of the workings of mind. By "inverse engineering", the "form"of any universe is declared as amenable of description via the data model of the A3 approach. The meaning is assigned to universes via(homo)morphisms of universes. A universe with meaning is said to be a world -a treatment which complies with the usage of this term in Semantic Web. The integration of knowledge of the worlds of different disciplines can be achieved via application of functors of category theory. At SemanticSoft, Inc., a software system for knowledge representation based on the data model of Universics is in the process of development.
