The Whatness of an Apple

"In scholastic philosophy," Wikipedia informs us, "quiddity was another term for the essence of an object, literally it's "whatness,' or 'what it is.'" 

After reading that, I began thinking a lot about the 'whatness' of things. Here I am deeply contemplating the whatness of an apple. (Courtesy of Jerry Janquart Salvo Magazine.)
