Not "through." "X qua x"--"x 'as x itself'"

In other words, not an impression of x or anything else like that. X itself.

Saying "x" itself is not the same as "x" qua "x". One shows one x the other two x's. "x" qua "x" shows multiple "x's" and with multiple "x's" showing multiple times and spaces which define both x's thus showing a degree of non-equality.

Tell me how something can be the same as itself without resulting in multiplicity. Equality is multiplicity.

Mentioning is a form of use.

All philosophers are incredibly confused about identity.

You are doing this thing all Philosophers do where you are inventing time outside of time.

That must be the new math.

If something is equal it is equal to something else. Equality observes two phenomenon with the same nature. Tell me how something can be the same as itself without resulting in multiplicity.

The point would be that something "and itself" wouldn't be something and something else, would it?

1 and 1 is 2. The keep term is "and".

When you do addition, such as 1+1=2, do you believe that you're adding something to itself? For example, are you "adding" an apple to the very same apple?

When you say something "and itself" are you not dividing the phenomenon by stating "and"? How can "and" refer to anything other than something else?

And again, do you think that you're adding an apple to the same apple? That's a yes or no question just in case it's beyond your cognitive abilities to recognize a yes or no question.

It is not a yes or no question given "maybe" is the third option.

Can an apple and an apple be the same apple? In one respect yes in another no.
