Abstract

Traditional efforts to describe mental phenomena have operated based on definitions of minds as singular, gestalt objects rather than collections of fundamental objects. By an argument against vague cases in categorizing objects, it will be shown that it is necessary to construct a novel metaphysical theory of objects, and particularly minds, which acknowledges gestalt objects to be arbitrarily defined.
