Color/Evans: something that has a color is not yet a pattern of the shade, which makes sure that everything that belongs to the extension of the shade is that which cannot be distinguished from it.
Problem: intermediates can be found which are not distinguishable from each other, but from the original piece.
Thus the subject lost the original concept without having noticed!
Therefore, memory (recognition) is relatively uncertain here._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side. ((s)…): Comment by the sender of the contribution.
