Hi! I'm trying to remove this universal ontological status altogether.
Once it's gone, everything exists almost trivially, as it shouldn't be
hard to find the Y. For instance, X exists in the singleton set { X }.

I suspect that "exists" in the absolute sense grew out of the relative
sense "exists in the world", until it became the center for a whole
area of philosophical inquiry. I no longer see the absolute sense as

My motivation was to find a good justification for theses such as:
mathematical existence guarantees existence in general.
