AD4M's representation of an Agent
AD4M Agents are build around DIDs, which are used to identify and authenticate the Agent. Conceptually, an Agent is regarded as something that can speak and that can listen.
Agents speak by creating Expressions in AD4M Languages which are signed by the Agent's DID key, And they also speak (broadcast) by putting semantic statements into their public "Agent Perspective". They listen (can receive messages) through their "direct message Language".
These three aspects are represented by the three fields of this class.
This class is used as format for the Expressions in the Agent language. Since AD4M treats DID URIs as addresses for the Agent Language, DIDs are resolved to Expressions that are objects of this class. Thus, this is how agents see (other) agents.

The Perspective that holds the public-facing semantics/statements of the Agent Holds and shares a Perspective that links all information this agent wants to offer as public-facing semantics. This should be used for any kind of user profile information.
