Let me from my philosophical corner just add one long sentence: No 
famous philosophical ontologist who posits physical (material) things in 
space and time has argued that everything that exists in space and time 
is physical (material); for instance, many claim that property instances 
*inhere in* physical things, but this does not mean that these 
spatiotemporal instances *are* physical entities.    (02)
