Might be.  I cant tell.  Far too way out for me.  Here's a quote:

"An important point to stress again is that the Mental partitioning of the
Undifferentiated Reality into a Differentiated Reality
composed of Fact–Thing Dipoles is a purely Mental Conceptualization
composed by Us in the form of Our Combined World."

Yeh.  Right.  If it is (it does mention OMG and MOF) then it's _deep_
background!  My understanding of Core relates to one of the IDL modules that
comprises the UML CORBA definition.  See the OMG site for the doc "OA&D
CORBAfacility Interface Definition" (97-08-09.pdf).

The Reflective module of the UML definition relates to the model used to
describe UML itself.  UML is a meta-model, the reflective module is part of the
meta-meta-model.  The reflective module is also part of the Meta Object Facility
and described in "Meta Object Facility (MOF) Specification" (97-08-14.pdf).

The IDL is directly from the OA&D doc, althougth I think Sami has broken it up
into more easily digestable pieces.
