Principle of Variety/Leibniz: (2nd Principle next to the Identity Principle):
"That different things are perceived by me".
This says nothing about the reality content of my perceptions! These could be phenomenal side effects or unconscious productions.
Holz I 78
Principle of Variety/Principles/Thinking/Leibniz: the formal possibility of thinking is based on the principle of variety.
((s) Because you cannot think of a single thing without relation to anything else.)
Double movement/ascent/descent/Leibniz/Holz: from the certainty of the perceived multiplicity, one can now ascend to the infinitesimal boundary concept "all beings at the same time"._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
