Pat, I will try to get a succinct copy of my component based ontology model and send it to you. It is (as you can guess from my question) being re-written and formalized, but it was the basis of my Master's Thesis some time back.
One of the things I have found about what I am calling a "concept" in my model is that it is meaningless by itself. It does not exist by itself, but it gives definition to any entity that exhibits it. The "space" component in my model is the entity (which are then related to other entities), and the definition of that "space" comes from the complete set of "concepts" that the entity exhibits. The properties (identifiable characteristics) that an entity can have are each tied to some of the "concepts" that the entity exhibits.
What my model proposes, of course, is that for a domain with a finite number of entities, there is some finite number of "concepts" that exist, which combine together with other "concepts" to give meaning to those entities.
But, as with everything else in the model, I am still refining on it. Within the next few months, I will have a much more formal definition of the model, which will help with further analysis and refinement.
