Extra Credit #1: Include explicit representations of the participants in the physical process instances involved and the conditions under which they occur.

Extra Credit #3: Implement inference rules that take as input a pair of sequence of events and automatically reaches a reasonable conclusion about which course of action would be better, in terms of a higher value for some goal parameter.
