wants
(wants ?AGENT ?OBJECT) means that ?OBJECT is desired by ?AGENT, i.e. ?AGENT believes that ?OBJECT will satisfy one of its goals. Note that there is no implication that what is wanted by an agent is not already possessed by the agent.
Relationships      
Parents inScopeOfInterest A very general Predicate. (inScopeOfInterest ?AGENT ?ENTITY) means that ?ENTITY is within the scope of interest of ?AGENT. Note that the interest indicated can be either positive or negative, i.e. the ?AGENT can have an interest in avoiding or promoting ?ENTITY.
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.
 BinaryPredicateA Predicate relating two items - its valence is two.
 BinaryRelationBinaryRelations 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.
 InheritableRelationThe class of Relations whose properties can be inherited downward in the class hierarchy via the subrelation Predicate.
 IntentionalRelationThe Class of Relations between an Agent and one or more Entities, where the Relation requires that the Agent have awareness of the Entity.
 ObjectAttitudeThe Class of IntentionalRelations where the Agent has awareness of an instance of Physical.
 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.
