This are very interesting point you are making! And I am interested to further discuss it. But it is veering away from the topic of this discussion, which is how we can get started working on Petri net education, simulations, etc. at Azimuth. Rather than pull a discussion in the direction of a theme that is on your mind, why not step right up and start a new discussion with a title that directly states your theme.
