Object-Orientation FAQ

1.17) Is An Object A Class?

In a Level 3 System and above yes, but only instances of a Meta-Class are
Classes.  Instances of a Class (ordinary objects) are not classes (excluding
hybrid systems).  However, all objects may be classes in single hierarchy
systems, since any object may act as a class (provide object instantiation or
act as a shared parent).
