Isn’t this just the reification fallacy? From Wikipedia: Reification (also known
as concretism, or the fallacy of misplaced concreteness) is a fallacy of ambiguity, when
an abstraction (abstract belief or hypothetical construct) is treated as if it were a
concrete, real event, or physical entity. In other words, it is the error of treating as
a concrete thing something which is not concrete, but merely an idea.
Like reifying arithmetic.
