The modeling of adversarial intent is compared with another area requiring the modeling of human intent - the representation of knowledge in a contract. The symmetry of the parties to a contract is used as an analog of the symmetry required to model hostile parties, where each attempts to monitor and predict the actions of the other. The dynamic construction of undirected, self-extensible structures using associative patterns is described. New methods of constraint reasoning are introduced to allow it to direct the construction of new structure and to allow free structures to crawl over other cognitive structures to modify them or to link structures together. The close integration of existence and time with logic and the use of relations on relations in a multi-layered active structure allow the system to be very much closer both to the reality of battle and the human intention about which it must infer.
