According to the ancient Chinese encyclopedia, animals are divided into:
a) belonging to the Emperor,
d) sucking pigs,
g) stray dogs,
h) included in the present classification,
k) drawn with a very fine camelhair brush,
l) et cetera,
m) having just broken the water pitcher,
n) that from a long way off look like flies.
Maybe it was one of the world's first classification, but of course, not ontological… .
