Conventions: Conventions are agreements on approval and disapproval of actions that may have been made explicitly once, but have evolved over time to a more or less unconscious basis for the coordinated action of most members of a group or society. These conventions, on the other hand, lead to the expectation of certain consequences of actions.

Convention/Goodman: The question of whether a point is atomic or composed is obviously a matter of convention. On the other hand, is the isomorphism of a correlation, as well as the variation of distance over time, a matter of facts?
If the question of the composition of points is conventional and not a matter of facts, then points and lines are at least not less conventional! (There is no neutral fact).
