[Crm-sig] ISSUE: P62 needs a parent and a sibling

I agree with Steve. I've struggled to think of any examples that don't constitute the physical object acting as a carrier for a conceptual object. I know the example I suggested for Steve's thinking was a bit obvious, but unless any of Vladimir's examples are radically different then the model seems to be robust in this area.

Best wishes,

Yes this is another inscription (conceptual object) that is carried on the
physical object (the plague). It is the conceptual object that has the
"aboutness" not the plaque.
