I started off by wondering what you meant by a "thing"? Mugs, computers,
these are things I can touch, see etc. Emotions are "things" I can
experience. I guess in a way everything we are aware of is a "thing" in
some form or other.

By this ultra-simplistic logic, an organization is indeed a "thing",
question is, what type of a "thing" is it????
