Dear All,

Here an attempt to improve the new scope note of S15 Observable Entity 
with respect to the confinement of event observation:

*S15 Observable Entity *

Subclass of: E1 <#_heading=h.1fob9te> CRM Entity

Superclass of:      E5 Event

                            O10 Material Substantial

Scope note:

This class comprises instances of E5 Event and O10 Material Substantial 
i.e. items or phenomena, such as physical things, their behavior, 
current state and interactions or events, that can be observed by human 
sensory impression as well as enhanced by using tools and measurement or 
detection devices.

In order to be observable, instances of E5 Event must consist of some 
interaction or action of material substance. In some cases, *the 
spatiotemporal* confinement of the event itself, such as a flash, a car 
stopping etc. *marks the limits of a documented observation of an 
event*. In other cases, such as the situation of a car passing by a 
certain object, *the spatiotemporal limits of the event of observing 
itself, as well as the direction of attention or the orientation of used 
instruments, may constrain the observed detail of a larger process*, 
e.g., i.e. noticing the sight of a car passing by, a light emission.
