Object reorientation

Are functions objects? If so, is Object Re-orientation THE ANSWER?

Function parameters could be analagous to instance variables. Objects need not always be used of as nouns, as the tradition is. We would need to think a little differently about objects, state and methods. A function might be a specialized form of object. It sounds like I'm stretching object orientation too far. But I think that we're wearing the wrong lens. Objects are not about nouns. Object is the wrong word. I will reorient and then rephrase in a later post.
