If we could “turn off” all interactions in the universe which couple to spin, then different spin states would be in principle indistinguishable (although still not identical), and the particles would obey parastatistics at the fundamental level. We can play the same game with color, isospin and numerous other internal degrees freedom. (Indeed, the parastatistical treatment of quarks [3] predates the introduction of color [4].)
