Hope the religious will not see as a blasphemy for the ontological 
interpretation considering the logos as the principle of order and 
"In the beginning was the ontology, and the ontology was with Reality 
(Nature, or God as our ancient countryman, Zenon of Citium, insisted), and 
Reality was the ontology.")

Indeed, the difference between formal logic and real life ontology is like 
the distinction between mathematical abstraction and real world.
Some real life example. Of all global assets, equities, government bonds, 
corporate bonds, natural resources, human assets, and real estate property, 
residential and commercial, in the so-called developed economies 8 years 
ago, the last one amounted to $ 54 trillion. And the biggest portion of the 
total wealth was in land and buildings.
Here is the industry foundation classes ontology (format, specification) 
developed by the International Alliance for Interoperability 5 years ago for 
a multi-trillion AEC industry.
The IFC sees all entities as rooted and non-rooted entities. Rooted 
entities, IfcRoot, is subdivided into: object definitions, relationships, 
and property sets. IfcObjectDefinition addresses tangible object occurrences 
and types, subdivided further into actors, controls, groups, products, 
processes, and resources. IfcRelationship handles relationships among 
objects, like as composition, assignment, connectivity, association, and 
definition. IfcPropertyDefinition refers to the set of properties about 
object occurrences or object types, and so on. The IFC is emerging as an 
open interoperable format of facility/building information modeling 
software, essentially changing the standard real property industry.
Just without clearly naming it, these big ideas come from the real life 
ontology, which is sadly missing in all the hot discussions and formal 
logical debates.
