[catalogued under 9. Objects / F. Identity among Objects / 5. Self-Identity]

Full Idea

'Existence' can't be glossed as self-identical (critics say) because Pegasus, even while being self-identical, fails to exist.

Gist of Idea

Maybe self-identity isn't existence, if Pegasus can be self-identical but non-existent
