Empiricists do not ask questions about the ontological status of mathematical or logical structures. Idealists don't explain how Ideas are developed, or how technological advancement in general takes place. But Kant tells us that we do have access to a priori knowledge in spite of Materialists' objections against Dualism:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind%E2%80%93body_dualism

Now one may construct several self-consistent ontologies such that the entities in one are not valid objects in any other. From this one may develop an epistemic framework for each, and again these epistemologies may be incompatible. But consider if by process or accident, maybe by emergent structure or epiphenomenon from sufficient complexity, could there develop objects and structures that are essentially equivalent? And what would the status of such objects be: is it one object existing in multiple ontologies or is it two closely coupled objects in non-intersecting ontologies? Most importantly (and consider the epistemics implied) Would these special objects allow information, if not energy, to exchanges between ontological realms?

Where are these ideas developed or refutedIs there any modern treatment of these ideas? Specifically, is there any development beyond Descartes and the Greeks?

As an aside, I just realized that not every ontology admits Energy. Is it possible to have an ontology with out Information?

Is Reality an intersection of Incompatible Ontologies?
