Since this is an intentional operator, it has already been dealt with.

We push on with the conceptions we have brought to the work, and which of course can not be false, and we say, Oh yes, we have there more units, naturally not quite the same as the others, and—voilà tout. But when a sceptical reader, whose mind has not been warped by a different education, attempts to form an idea of what is meant, he is somewhat at a loss. For when one invokes the object in question, one simply adds an extra element to the melange. If one is puzzled by the unity in the first case, one should be equally puzzled by the supposed unity in the second.

Now, however, the intuition pump ceases to function. The insistence that the spheres are nonetheless the distinct, starts to appear incoherent. The second sort of counter-example concerns quantum particles. It has been argued that two particles may be distinct, even though any measurement on one  For a survey and discussion, see Forrest (2010), French (2010).  See Hawley (2009). 24 unity will yield exactly the same as a measurement on the other. Given that all properties are observationally determinable, we have a counter-example.
