Many as one
|Abstract||The problem of the many challenges our way of counting ordinary objects. We say that on an open plain on the northern boundary of Tanzania stands one mountain, Kilimanjaro. Yet there are many distinct, overlapping, mountain-shaped aggregates of particles, each of which is an equally good candidate to be this mountain. How can it be true, then, that there is one mountain on the plain, as opposed to many?|
