That's an interesting point, Steve, but if it is a 'thing', one should be
able to distinguish one such thing from two such things.
More importantly, 'change' is an abstract noun - it doesn't refer to a
thing, but what happens *to* things. There are all sorts of words that do
not designate things: tomorrow, the past, freedom, justice etc.
