sumo#collection__physical_collection  such a collection has members like a class, but unlike a class, it has a position in space-time and members can be added and subtracted without thereby changing the identity of the collection; some examples are toolkits, football teams, and flocks of sheep
  supertype:  sumo#object__entity_with_spatial_feature  spatial object (space, location or physical object) or description medium/container (e.g., string, language, image); in a 4D ontology, an object is something whose spatiotemporal extent is thought of as dividing into spatial parts roughly parallel to the time-axis
     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:  sumo#physical__physical_thing  an entity that has a location in space-time; locations are themselves understood to have a location in space-time; click here for more details on the identical category sowa#physical_thing
        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:  pm#collection  something gathering separated things (entities/situations)
     supertype:  pm#non_spatial_object_that_is_not_a_description_content/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:  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:  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:  pm#divisible_entity__divisibleentity  many classifications under this category are application-dependant
        supertype:  pm#entity  something that can be "involved" in a situation
        supertype:  pm#divisible_thing
           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
