Object/Thing/Object/Extension/Lewis: a given object in itself is neither extension nor intension - e.g. in a metameta language you can say that one and the same thing is both, the intension of the expression in the surface structure "my ha" and the extension of the meta-linguistic expression intension of "my hat" - However, some entities can only serve as extensions, while others - e.g. functions of indices - can be used as both - but there is not one thing that would be unsuited to be an extension.
