"Trace it back to the "real" world, and you find that to have one object plus another of the same object (but distinct) requires subtle physical conditions."

Are there objects and this notion of "same but distinct" in the "real" world? I think if you stop at objects, you haven't traced back far enough. (By the way has there been much/any discussion of objects on LW that I've missed?)
