comment Word for 'internal uniformity of an object'
I find your analysis a bit strange, actually. If an object is indivisible, how can you compare two parts of it and find that they are uniform with each other?

comment Excusing oneself
"Excuse" might be transitive, but "myself" is reflexive.

comment Excusing oneself
That doesn't sound right to me. Doesn't the reflexivity of "myself" mean that it is me who is doing the excusing, rather than the person being addressed? I mean, even without the reflexivity, the subject is explicitly "I".

comment Excusing oneself
