Here, you say “a new foundation in which collections—rather than objects—are the most fundamental entities“.
My question is does my perceiving a certain collection to be a certain object make it to be so? For eg., consider a slab of wood – I can see it as a chair and choose to sit on it, someone may see it as a table and use it to put things on it etc. So what is that piece of wood – a table or a chair or both?
A similar conundrum appears in Mahabharata in the Krishna lifting the wheel incident. Some argue it was a weapon and some say it wasn’t. How is that conflict resolved?
