This week we'll discuss conflicts between minimal mereology and the possibility of multilocation. I'll also discuss a similar conflict between axioms about fundamentality and the possibility of multilocation. This is also relevant for the possibility of three-dimensionally persisting objects, if we think those are best understood in terms of multilocation.
