RE: NonE's call about self-ownership
Even so, NonE my bud buddy. The car to a caveman would be a wonder indeed. Yet through language I could express the idea of a car. Even if none existed. Does the car exist if none were ever made? No, it was an idea (fiction of the mind), yet we can read science fiction and understand something that doesn't exist.

Just because we label something does not mean it exists. A neutrino may exist but we theorize its existence and we call it a neutrino just because it has a label does it factually exist? I say no until hard evidence says otherwise. The same goes for ownership. We theorized its existence yet when we came down to factually proving it we couldn't other than the force expended by believers to make you recant your non-belief. Remember our old pal Galileo? He was spot on but the church took 500 years to apologize for placing him under house arrest for heresy. What would have happened if he refused to recant? I think we all know, history is replete with examples.

In my opinion labels are fictions we use to describe things and if the label become common enough linguistically it is a fiction that sticks as a describer. Yes it may describe a Chyrsler LeBaron but that does not mean the label has a reality because you can put your hands on an example of what is being described. Even Chrysler LeBaron doesn't fully describe a car was it an SE or LE? Coupe or Sedan? Hardtop or convertible? Manual or automatic transmission?
