"Low frequency entities" and "high frequency entities" seems to convey what you mean without all those erroneous associations.
P.S. When I first saw this thread I thought it was going to be about the Dan Brown book.
It makes sense that in a narrow sense it does matter but in a wider sense it does not matter to individual beings what you call them. It does not change anything about them.
