Features/Existence/Chisholm/Sauer: from consistency principle
:(Ex) "F" has a consistent meaning = Def (Ea) (a = e (F) a = the meaning of "F") - it follows, if a is a consistent property, then there is an entity that is the meaning of the corresponding predicate - problem: that is itself no logical or analytical principle and therefore consistently negatable - so there is a possible world so that (10) "the property of square-ness exists" and also worlds where that is not true.
