I think the identity of indiscernibles applies: If no distinction can ever

Yes, but how do you know you are pointing to a "physical chair", rather than a
I know I'm pointing at a chair. I don't know what at 'mathematical chair' is. Can you

Also, the "point test" fails to work for past or future times, different branches of the

But it's fundamental. All the others depend on it through physical links.
