contains information
A subrelation of represents. This predicate relates a ContentBearingPhysical to the Proposition that is expressed by the ContentBearingPhysical. Examples include the relationships between a physical novel and its story and between a printed score and its musical content.
Relationships      
Parents represents A very general semiotics Predicate. (represents ?THING ?ENTITY) means that ?THING in some way indicates, expresses, connotes, pictures, describes, etc. ?ENTITY. The Predicates containsInformation and realization are subrelations of represents. Note that represents is a subrelation of refers, since something can represent something else only if it refers to this other thing. See the documentation string for names.
Children program copy(programCopy ?File ?Program) means that the ComputerFile ?File is one of the copies of the ComputerProgram ?Program.
InstancesabstractProperties or qualities as distinguished from any particular embodiment of the properties/qualities in a physical medium. Instances of 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 and time without some physical encoding or embodiment.
 antisymmetric relationBinaryRelation ?REL is an AntisymmetricRelation if for distinct ?INST1 and ?INST2, (?REL ?INST1 ?INST2) implies not (?REL ?INST2 ?INST1). In other words, for all ?INST1 and ?INST2, (?REL ?INST1 ?INST2) and (?REL ?INST2 ?INST1) imply that ?INST1 and ?INST2 are identical. Note that it is possible for an AntisymmetricRelation to be a ReflexiveRelation.
 asymmetric relationA BinaryRelation is asymmetric if and only if it is both an AntisymmetricRelation and an IrreflexiveRelation.
 binary predicateA Predicate relating two items - its valence is two.
 binary relationBinaryRelations are relations that are true only of pairs of things. BinaryRelations are represented as slots in frame systems.
 entityThe universal class of individuals. This is the root node of the ontology.
 inheritable relationThe class of Relations whose properties can be inherited downward in the class hierarchy via the subrelation Predicate.
 irreflexive relationRelation ?REL is irreflexive iff (?REL ?INST ?INST) holds for no value of ?INST.
 predicateA Predicate is a sentence-forming Relation. Each tuple in the Relation is a finite, ordered sequence of objects. The fact that a particular tuple is an element of a Predicate is denoted by '(*predicate* arg_1 arg_2 .. arg_n)', where the arg_i are the objects so related. In the case of BinaryPredicates, the fact can be read as `arg_1 is *predicate* arg_2' or `a *predicate* of arg_1 is arg_2'.
 relationThe Class of relations. There are three kinds of Relation: Predicate, Function, and List. Predicates and Functions both denote sets of ordered n-tuples. The difference between these two Classes is that Predicates cover formula-forming operators, while Functions cover term-forming operators. A List, on the other hand, is a particular ordered n-tuple.
