A method of packet switching the packets in a data packet communication environment having a plurality of digital packet transmission stations interconnectable in paths. The steps include causing a first digital packet transmission of a smart data packet at a first end to send one or more smart data packets having a learning algorithm therein for learning a path to a second digital packet transmission station at a second end and then causing an acknowledgement packet to be sent from the second end having a learning path of the smart data packet from the first end to the second end in a reverse path direction to the first end. Then waiting and the first digital packet transmission station for the acknowledgement packet before sending a dumb data packet on the learned path received at the first end from the acknowledgement packet whereby a cognitive packet network is formed by packet switching.
