>>due to the fact that objects can't possess

Wait a minute. What fact that what objects can't possess? Don't
trees possess branches? Don't rocks possess sharp edges? Isn't it
possible for mud to possess a smell? Must there be a mortgage, a
receipt, or some kind of ownership certificate before you can write
about a tree's branches, a rock's sharp edges, or mud's odor? Come

You people been listening to too many lawyers, letting them do your
thinking for you.
