I think you are conflating the concepts with whatever the phenomena may be.
They are not one and the same, and that is and has been a big problem with our "discussions" here.
There are always concepts. All of us have them. Some are closer to reality, and hence more useable than others, but none are ever reality.
Well, I don't think she is nor that is anyone else.
Of course we shouldn't conflate the concept with the vocabulary/metaphor that is used to circumscribe the concept, either. But I can't see where this or that has happened to any of the IP/IS proponents in this thread.
Could you delineate how you derive your observation?
