Disagree.  Most things may be the same but it is still instance y as 
opposed to instance x, therefore his axiom has a logic error.  They are 
still two different things.  It may be better to state:    (02)

if x = y, then x is y and both should be called x.    (03)

Also - an important consideration of context is perceiver.  To you and 
I, a coffee table is a solid item, to a neutrino, it is a lot of open 
space interspersed with a few bits of solid matter (even that is now up 
for debate - Holographic Universe; Michael Talbot, ISBN 0060922583).    (04)

Perception is everything in context.  Who is the experiencer?    (05)
