Physical World is composed on your sensors and actuators. Physical Objects require a virtual Object in t6.
Objects in t6 are the virtual nodes of your physical devices. They are sending values from their embedded sensors to the Flows. Common cardinality is 1:1; but you can setup multiple Flows for the same Object (a DHT11 sensor handle 'temperature' and 'humidity' for instance). Additionally, you can set a Flow to be feed from multiple Objects.
Communication becomes easy in the platform with Timestamped values. Flows allows to retrieve and classify data.
Objects are sending their Data to Flow-containers using the API.

Yes, t6 is made of coffee..
