Searles defies classification:

"There are not two (or five or seven) fundamental ontological categories,
rather the act of categorization itself is always interest relative. For 
that reason the attempt to answer such questions as, 'How many fundamental 
metaphysical categories are there?', as it stands, is meaningless. We live 
in exactly one world and there are as many different ways of dividing it as 
you like."
