Synopsis: A synopsis, which will be developed in ontology. Directed, with left and right sides. Actions provide the primary categories of this ontology. They have a fundamental direction, leading from one aspect (beginning, prior, input, source, precondition, cause) to another (ending, posterior, output, sink, consequence, effect, result).
