    common properties of things?

    like these things?

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Because they were numbered differently. #1 is not #2 when #1 is #1 same goes for #2 being #1 when it is #2.

    but what if #1 then wore the #2 label, would #1 still be #1 or would he take on the common properties of #2, and would you need a special intelligence to then determine the difference

    It depends on the level of brain damage caused by listening to Dark Side of the Moon while watching the Wizard of Oz.

    ah, of course, imagine what it would sound like if you replaced all the lyrics in dark side of the moon with words from Dr. Seuss books
