Both David Lewis and Ted Sider have used natural properties to solve the issues of Putnam's Model-Theoretic argument. However, both Lewis and Sider also take naturalness to occur on the micro-physical ground floor. In this paper, I look at the problems that arise with micro-naturalism and also possible alternatives to this view for use in reference magnetism.
