Hi Sergei...    (02)

Well, that's an ontic question, isn't it?  If sets are there in the world,
then no - there's nothing abstract going on.  I'm real.  Chuck is real. 
And the set of me and Chuck is real.  But even if you don't like sets in
your ontology and like them instead in your meta-theory, I just don't see
that it is useful to say what is going on is "abstract".    (03)
