There is no unique canonical labeling set of entities. There is (at

valuations cannot be considered as separable from the entities that
they act on as valuation. Therefore we cannot think of them as
uniquely ontologically primitive.
The proof that I can point to is derived from the theorems of
quantum mechanics and the experimental evidence supporting them. Objects
in the world simply cannot be said to have a particular set of
properties associated with them and not the complementary set of
properties. We can at best say that they have a superposition of all
possible properties. Why would abstract objects be any different?
