Full Idea

Taking facts to be the relata of grounding has the interesting consequence that it does not relate ordinary particulars, objects, considered apart from their properties.

Gist of Idea

If grounding relates facts, properties must be included, as well as objects

A Reaction

It will depend on what you mean by properties, and it seems to me that something like 'powers' must be invoked, to get the active character that seems to be involved in grounding.
