I agree, it is sense or what the referent of the word sense is. My

Right. To me it's pretty clear that numbers and names are only an
aspect of sense - ways for one form of sensemaking to make sense of
What you are pointing out is an example of second order relations
and is very important to note that if we are considering more than just
first person experience (for example, what a solipsist might experience)
then we need to have a framework to consider n-th order cases. This
moves us out of ontology per se and into epistemology. Ontology deals
with "primitives" but only from the position of already having an
epistemology as we must presume the existence of ourselves and the
ability to communicate with each other to even have the conversation.
