Lift model of Netherlands scenario
Model of interesting scenario involving a lift
This is a model of an interesting scenario that Meurig encountered whilst at a conference in
the Netherlands in 1988, when he and two other delegates all managed to get out of the lift at the wrong
floor through a series of interlocking mistakes. It uses many definitions and is a good example of
the definitive style and is a good representation of Meurig's construal of the situation. This is
explained in the accompanying paper "Radical Empiricism, Empirical Modelling and the nature of
knowing" by WMB which was presented by SBR at Lucerne in 2003.
It also includes some automation: files introduced at later stages cause "the lift" to open "it's own"
doors and so on. Unfortunately the tkeden tool was not designed for a multi-agent simulation
such as this and there are various problems: a delay has been introduced to slow the model to a
speed where the scenario can be seen progressing... but the way the delay is modelled, /all/
agents are paused whilst the delay is active.
