object
Corresponds roughly to the class of ordinary objects. Examples include normal physical objects, geographical regions, and locations of Processes, the complement of Objects in the Physical class. 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.
Relationships      
Parents physical An entity that has a location in space-time. Note that locations are themselves understood to have a location in space-time.
Children agentSomething or someone that can act on its own and produce changes in the world.
 artifactAn Object that is the product of a Making.
 astronomical bodyThe Class of all astronomical objects of significant size. It includes SelfConnectedObjects like planets, stars, and asteroids, as well as Collections like nebulae, galaxies, and constellations. Note that the planet Earth is an AstronomicalBody, but every Region of Earth is a GeographicArea.
 collectionCollections have members like Classes, but, unlike Classes, they have 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.
 ContactSiteA ContactSite is an Object, typically a Place or a Residence or a CommunicationDevice such as a Telephone, that has some kind of address identifier and can serve as a point of contact for a Human or Organization.
 magnetAny object that emits Magnetism. Note that this includes both NaturalMagnets and Electromagnets and therefore the most specific superclass is Object, since natural magnets are divisible Substances and electromagnets are CorpuscularObjects.
 foodPreparedFood refers to anything that undergoes some process intended to result in an object that has Nutrient which can be ingested by Animal, normally metabolized into energy and body tissue.
 regionA topographic location. Regions encompass surfaces of Objects, imaginary places, and GeographicAreas. Note that a Region is the only kind of Object which can be located at itself. Note too that Region is not a subclass of SelfConnectedObject, because some Regions, e.g. archipelagos, have parts which are not connected with one another.
 self connected objectA SelfConnectedObject is any Object that does not consist of two or more disconnected parts.
 SphericalObjectAn object with the attribute of being spherical.
 transitway obstacleTransitwayObstacle is the general class of Objects that can act as obstacles to Motion along a Transitway.
 two dimensional objectA real-world physical object with a very flat aspect. This includes drawings on paper, cave paintings and other surface alterations.
