IntentionalPsychologicalProcess
An IntentionalProcess is a process that can be realized entirely within the mind or brain of an Organism. Thus,for example, Reasoning is a subclass of IntentionalPsychologicalProcess, because one can reason simply by exercising one's mind/brain. On the other hand, RecreationOrExercise is not a subclass of IntentionalPsychologicalProcess, because many instances of RecreationOrExercise necessarily have subProcesses of BodyMotion.
