The dance does not exist, but the people do? My heart beats, my neurons
fire, my corpuscles flow in an intricate dance of their own; when that
dance is interrupted, where goes the underlying person?

I think you are using the word dance to denote many different concepts, and also
looking back on what I wrote, it was definitely not clear what =

I had written, so I will rephrase it rather than to continue to address your 
different points.

What I am saying is that the concept of dance exists in our minds, but the 
motions, the heartbeats, corpuscles and all other entities, actions, =

etc. working together do make up a dance, so I think we are in agreement here. 
All I was trying to say, is that what we classify as dance, the =

concept, is a human construction which identifies individual motions, people, 
etc. which *do* exist with similar properties and lops them =
together under the category dance.
