Ontology is the theory of objects and their relationships, interdependencies and attributes. Ontology provides principles for recognizing characteristic features of all things understood intellectually. Ontology focuses on the meaning of being, the essence and its source/identity. Ontology investigates the essential variations of entities and their interdependencies. Ontology studies the fundamental processes and the relationship of mind. Ontology studies how an object relates to the world and to itself. Ontology studies in a sense the interactions of the physical sciences to the atomic sciences. Ontology ultimately pursues the core essence and uses a descriptive definition that defines that analysis abstractly. Ontology has roots going back over 2000 years.
