Is there a word that is parent to "entity" and not on lines of "kind" or "all entities"?
Example: I have three "kinds" of entities, "forum", "topic", and "post".
I store them in a large area called "entities" as well which is confusing the heck out of me. I needed a different name.
entities: <<<<<<<< I need a better word here forumEntities: entity1, entity2, entity3, topicsEntities: entity1, entity2, entity3, postsEntities: entity1, entity2, entity3
So really the word I'm looking for is something to mean "all entity groups" or "various entity groups" or "entity baskets" or "entity branch".
I was thinking maybe worst case change the word entity to "stuff" then be like "stuffings > (stuffing === stuffs) > stuff"
stuffings: forumStuffs: stuff1, stuff2, stuff3 topicStuffs: stuff1, stuff2, stuff3 postStuffs: stuff1, stuff2, stuff3
If you have any ideas better then "stuff" i'm all for abandoning the word "entity". Here is another I thought of, "entita" which is not a real word, I go the idea from the animal kingdom, phyla, phylum etc:
entitas: formEntita == forumEntitys: entity1, entity2, entity3
