/**
 * Shows how agents exchange messages by targeting roles.

 * Looking for someone, agents do not necessarily need to know who they talk to in terms of real ID. Indeed, what
 * matters in the artificial society is the roles an agent take. Roles tell a lot about what the agent is capable of and
 * supposed to do. So, agents can send messages to roles rather than to IDs. Here, the idea is: I need to contact a
 * "ping agent", no matter who will receive the message. And it is possible to do so using what follows:
