Ok: problems with “process” – took a bit to find it – and brought up the point of METHOD which got me over the hump: So: I’d gotten to a properties are processes. A set of properties can be an object. A set of objects can be a category. So, a category is a set of a set of processes. But: these are not PRESCRIPTIVE processes. It isn’t “showing you how they should work” but rather “describing an observed and measured process that took place” So, I’m considering categories as “structured objects’. A concept is a theory of a category. An ontology is a set of concepts. This can *be used as* or *turn into* norms but that’s not my intention as I am staying with what is descriptive – and not “the only description”. Just one of many possibilities. Process: descriptive vs prescriptive. https://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=434641&seqNum=2
