A banana is flying first
class from New York to LA. Two scientists, one in
each city, are talking on the phone about banana.
Because it is moving in relationship to its noun, the
referent of the word banana never occupies one
space, and anything that does not occupy one space does
not exist. Therefore, a banana will arrive at JFK
with no limousine into the city, even though the
reservation was confirmed in L.A.
