HAL, it was interesting to read "your version" of some concepts. It is much more involved than just to reply ny pushing the button when reading. Glossarymaking is a sweaty work, more than a vocabulary or a thesaurus. I for one identify 'existence' as some "difference" - without which nothing can exist (nirvana). Then there is 'information' - a red flag. I identify 'mine' as an acknowledged difference of ANY kind by ANY acknowledgor. Object I like to call an item WITH characteristics (your property?) and I condone matter as ideational one with effects one can perceive. You donot seem to differentiate in your IDs between the properties(?) of objects (callable: physical??) and ideational items. Or do you call ideation 'physical'?
We are in a maze of millennia-long misunderstandings of faulty observations and their explanation in ways of the epistemic level of that particular age. And mostof us keep 'religiously' the old (improper) distinctions of limited model-view of old. We still cannot do much better (ha ha). What the hell are those "numbers"???
