preprint description
In this paper, I examine the relationship between physical quantities and physical states in quantum theories. I argue against the claim made by Arageorgis (1995) that the approach to interpreting quantum theories known as Algebraic Imperialism allows for "too many states". I prove a result establishing that the Algebraic Imperialist has very general resources that she can employ to change her abstract algebra of quantities in order to rule out unphysical states.
