(sense-of): agent

Synopsis: Agents can be physical structures whose interactions create effects, can be physical forces, or can be rule-following interpreting, semantic systems. An agent is always at least postulated for every action. The lack of a specific agent can be seen as the "chance"agent, or as event which "just happens", e.g. a quantum event.
