It is no different than abstracting apples and oranges as fruit so that we can add one apple to one orange and get two fruit. It doesn't make apples and oranges the same thing.


Sure. But it makes both of them being incarnation of fruit, showing that fruit can exist even without apple or without orange.

But then your step 8 is analogous to saying that fruit exists in Platonia, independent of any physical realizations, and then since we can dispense with an physical realization of a fruit, physics is not fundamental but fruit is.
