Doug and  Azamat,

In every computer implementation and in every thought about possibilities, the word 'world' is a metaphor.  Those so-called 'objects' are not physical worlds.  They are descriptions in some computer notation or thoughts in some brain.

The word 'context' is more appropriate because it avoids the confusions caused by calling them worlds.
