sumo#set__bag  a set_or_class that satisfies extensionality as well as other constraints specified by some choice of set theory; sets differ from classes in two important respects: 1) sets are extensional (two sets with the same elements are identical), 2) a set can be an arbitrary stock of objects, i.e. there is no requirement that sets have an associated condition that determines their membership; note that sets are not assumed to be unique sets, i.e. elements of a set may occur more than once in the set
  closed_exclusion:  sumo#class
  subtype:  dl#set
  supertype:  sumo#set_or_class  the "set_or_class" of "sets" and "classes", i.e. any "instance" of "abstract" that has "elements" or "instances"
     supertype:  pm#set_or_class  like sumo#set_or_class but including rdfs#class too
        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:  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:  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
        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#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
