Fictions/fictitious objects/Gärdenfors: if we assume that an object is completely determined by the set of its property (Leibniz' principle), then all points, specified for all domains, can be viewed in a conceptual space as representations of possible objects. Such fictitious objects can then be viewed as cognitive constructs that do not need a reference in the external world. E.g. unicorns, witches, centaurs.
Fictitious objects/Meinong/GärdenforsVsMeinong/Gärdenfors: my approach (of points in a conceptual space) does not allow impossible objects such as Meinong's round square.
Solution/Gärdenfors: round and square are represented as separate regions of the form space so that no object can have both properties.
