|Individuation, philosophy: the picking out of an object by a determination by means of additional information which is not to be derived from a single statement which contains this object. For example, beliefs are individualized by content, not e.g. by the length of the character strings with which they are expressed. The contents of a belief are, in turn, not individuated by their repetition, but by other contents.|

Auditory world/Strawson/Schulte: through beginning/end alone no particular-recognition: no distinction possible whether the same or different tone (meaningless), therefore also no causality or action possible.
