This paper presents a strategy to handle incomplete knowledge during acquisition process. The goal of this research is to develop formal tools that benefit the law of semantic balance. The assumption is used that a situation inside the object's boundary in some world should be in balance with a situation outside it. It means that continuous cognition of an object aspires to a complete knowledge about it and knowledge about internal structure of the object will be in balance with knowledge about relationships of the object with other objects in its environment. It is supposed that one way to discover incompleteness of knowledge about some object is to measure and compare knowledge about its internal and external structures in an environment. If there exist differences between the internal and the external semantics of an object, then these differences can be used to derive more knowledge about the object to make knowledge complete. The knowledge refinement process is done step-by-step as a continuous evolution of a knowledge base. Each step consists first automatic analysis of semantic balance which is then followed by attempts to derive knowledge that will balance differences between internal and external semantics of the object. This paper describes an algebra that is used to describe the internal and external semantics of an object and to derive unknown part of it. The results presented are mostly theoretical ones.
