  instance:  aktp#PhD  aktp#DEng  aktp#MSc  aktp#MA  aktp#BA  aktp#BSc
  supertype:  aktp#Degree   A degree is type of award 
     supertype:  aktp#Award   An award is an intangible thing, even if the piece of paper which is often associated
            with an award is tangible.  What about the virtual piece of paper in the 
            virtual degree ceremony?  I guess that ought to be an intangible 
        supertype:  #accolade__award__honor__honour__laurels  a tangible symbol signifying approval or distinction; "an award for bravery"
           supertype:  #approval.subject_matter__commendation  a message expressing a favorable opinion; "words of approval seldom passed his lips"
              supertype:  #subject_matter__subjectmatter__message__content__substance  what a communication that is about something is about
                 supertype:  pm#description_content__descriptioncontent__information  e.g., a narration, an hypothesis
                    supertype:  pm#description  description (content/medium) of an entity or a situation
                       supertype:  pm#description_content/medium/container__descriptioncontent/medium/container
                          supertype:  pm#non_spatial_object__nonspatialobject  abstraction or description content/medium/container (a description medium that has some spatial feature is both instance of sumo#object and pm#non_spatial_object
                             supertype:  pm#entity  something that can be "involved" in a situation
                                supertype:  pm#thing__something___T__t___3D_or_4D_thing_or_anything_else  any category (type or individual) is instance of this type; any type is also a subtype of this type
                             supertype:  cyc#intangible  The collection of things that are not physical -- are not made of, or encoded in, matter. Every cyc#Collection is a cyc#intangible (even if its instances are tangible), and so are some cyc#individuals.  Caution: do not confuse `tangibility' with `perceivability' -- humans can perceive light even though it's intangible--at least in a sense.
                                supertype:  cyc#partially_intangible__partiallyintangible  The collection of things that either are wholly intangible (see cyc#Intangible) or have at least one intangible (i.e. immaterial) part (see cyc#intangibleParts). This includes intangible individuals, such as instances of cyc#Number-General  or cyc#Agreement, as well as non-individuals (all of which are intangible), i.e. instances of cyc#SetOrCollection.  It also includes things that have both tangible and intangible components (see cyc#CompositeTangibleAndIntangibleObject),  such as a printed copy of a newspaper (as its information content is intangible) or a person (as her mental states are intangible).

                    supertype:  sumo#abstract__entity_without_spatial_feature  e.g., knowledge, motivation, measure; properties or qualities as distinguished from any particular embodiment of the properties/qualities in a physical medium; instances of sumo#abstract can be said to exist in the same sense as mathematical objects such as sets and relations, but they cannot exist at a particular place or time without some physical encoding or embodiment

                    supertype:  pm#individual__particular___supertype_of_1st_order_types  all individuals (for concepts or relations) are implicitely or explicitely instance of that type

                          supertype:  pm#thing_playing_some_role  category to classify things according to roles/viewpoints; classification under this category is application-dependant
