ObjectA unified term to manipulate computer abstractions. The name 'object' is commonly used for that, although the first somewhat-unified frame to manipulate computer abstractions, namely Lisp, used lists.
The Tunes perspective is that any 'thing' spoken of in a system counts as an object; not merely those encoded in some particular way or observing some particular properties of Being.
Beware the fake: it's also a fad to be "Object-Oriented"!
For example, when trying to "define" objects, some people say that an object is something that "has a unique ID" (that is, can be individually identified). Now what is a unique ID? In what space does it live? This simply pushes other ideas of objects out to another level. Identifying for the sake of being identifiable is of limited value. Of course objects can be differentiated from each other, but this should be done according to useful semantical differences. Just saying "we consider objects" is enough and encompasses it.
