You can mathematically reconstruct an orange all the way down to its atomic structure. And then, you could represent, this way, as many oranges as you want. But that's just my point. The real oranges are still there, in front of you. You have the orange in one hand, and the mathematical representation of an orange in the other. And then if there are two oranges, mathematics will just give me a number to represent that there are two objects with the same structure. But it tells me nothing about the fact that these two objects are completely different and sepperate from each other, occupying a different place in my concsiousness. It tells me nothing about the ESSENCE of these two seperate entities. Essence of things is as individual and personal experience as consciousness itself, i think! I take it that's the point here!
