philosophical level is truth concept
in truth, object is free value that is why it is left as respected to b itself since it is a definitive positive superior fact to zero
absolute truth is the most superior free value existing but any value is a definitive free right exactly as absolute truth
there is a fact of equality for whatever is above zero, in truth
but equality is not identity while in truth it is the opposite as nothing is equality, while since truth is freedom existing value, then equality became the concept of true existence while objects free realities became the fact of existence

I think you are making a mistake by including location in your definition of an object unless the difference in location affects the object physically, which in most cases it does not.
That said I don't think any objects are exactly identical. Even those objects we may view as identical are only identical up to our ability to measure them.

Thanks. I thought the same about location, but I'm too ignorant on the topic to make such a claim.
What I need to ask is: When considering two objects, how identical does this philosophy want to get? Are we talking about objects that are only very similar, or so identical that the objects can be considered to be one in the same?
The cells in our bodies create new cells all the time, with the exact same information as the old cells. Doesn't cloning create two identical creatures?

I watched that documentary what the bleep do we know.. It said there is a lab in the US where the same object is in two places at the same time...
