Near is one of the three main reference states, along with eventual and broken.

Near references designate objects in the same vat, and so they can be the recipients of immediate calls. Near references cannot change state to broken.

Ordinary objects in the same vat ("foo", def foo {...}, [1, 2, 3], etc.) are near references.
