Entity

Introduction

This page defines a Higgins Entity.

Definition

Higgins uses the following Identity Gang definition of Entity, with the addition of the term "concept":

Entity
Person, thing, juridical entity, concept, animal or anything with separate existence.

This in turn is based on the Wikipedia definition of "Entity".

Notes

  • Although other Higgins Concepts (specifically, I-Node Correlation) refer to the concept of Entity, Entity is an abstract part of the Higgins Data Model and is not modeled directly.
  • Potentially many distinct, contextualized digital representations of an Entity exist simultaneously. Each of these representations is called a I-Node; each I-Node exists within a specific Context.
