Lets be careful about where and what "Thing" is, and what RDF resources

Thing is the vacuous root of all concepts typically found in knowledge
representation graphs. In order to instantiate "Thing" you need some
types to construct it, like Class and Role (or Resource in this case).

In addition, it is an anachronism for implementation not
conceptualization. In conceptualization it is implicit.
