True, though there's no rule defining what things are things ;)

I get it though, if the reality is consensual, then if the rules
recognize that 'Player xyz' exists, then it exists regardless of a
concrete manifestation, and is a player regardless of any Property on
that player.  Inheritance I suppose is then a matter of categorical
propositions ("All A are B", "X are Y iff p"), and ultimately it's up
the the judges.

About right?

And if that musing was all nonsense to anyone, then just consider it
the grinding sound from me shifting mental gears from a programming
language nomic to one based on spoken language.
