Is this dig-intoable?
TSRM suggest that the structure of light enables you to visually perceive whether a thing is dig-intoable or not. (Cf. TSRM, 1981, p. 261). But, do you visually perceive this? This could be a solid matrix of rock or it could be soft dirt or it could be a thin layer of dirt over concrete. Can you tell by looking?
Or, run this objection like the others. Get two boxes. Fill one with concrete and cover this by a thin layer of dirt and fill the other with dirt. You cannot visually perceive the dig-intoability of the one versus the other.
