[catalogued under 18. Thought / C. Content / 5. Twin Earth]

Full Idea

My view is that the concepts of both the Earth person and the Twin Earth person refer to BOTH forms of diamonds or water (H2O and XYZ).

Gist of Idea

A Reaction

Fair enough, though that seems to imply that my current concepts may actually refer to all sorts of items of which I am currently unaware. But that may be so.
