The paper discusses the relation between a novel approach of knowledge engineering, the event bush, and the formalism of directed hypergraph. Despite the seemingly obvious similarity, the relation appears to be far from transparent. However, if formulated accurately, it may give a handy demonstration tool for the event bush approach and open a new avenue of research in directed hypergraph theory.
