What does objectively mean in:
White's position is objectively lost in either case.

"What does objectively mean in:

If the game was played out using "perfect" analysis, then white will lose - s/he is objectively lost. If strong computer plays strong computer, then white loses

However, some other factors might affect the result - for example, black might fail to see the correct continuation, black might get into time trouble and make a mistake ...

Yes. I would think so. Probably more than one pawn.

Could be quite a bit ... a player could be materially up, yet lose the game through having a lost position. Think of Philidor's mate - one player "collects" the queen - but is then mated.

No real difference, I think. Perhaps a good excuse is slightly stronger.

So, s/he is not 'winning' the queen?

Thanks. What makes a move/continuation or activity essential, as opposed to necessary?

Another positive fact for Black is that his kingside majority is potentially more active than White's on the queenside. Objectively the position is equal.
