Max Born believed that symbols were not just a convenient way of shortening presentations, but an essential component of the method of penetrating the physical reality which lies behind phenomena. Through its increasingly-mathematical methods and by abandoning observable models, physics had gained the ability to handle an even larger collection of real phenomena. Mathematical constructions give humans the ability to achieve a better understanding of reality, since physics is the link between observable phenomena and the hidden structures of pure thought.

Subsistence in turn unifies the modi of substance within the latter’s essence. Under this perspective, the attribute is the system of the modi. Hence, space is the system of spatial modi. 25 Nature becomes thus the explicit form of mediation within which it can be said that substance „acts“ onto the world, as seen under the human perspective. ) Hence, utilizing the terminology of Spinoza’s, the potential of humans is their existence, as the potential of substance is ist essence. (Dei potentia est ipsa ipsius essentia.

E. a result of a sequent calculus which is not made of formulae, but of sequents which are finite sequences of formulae together with a connective which replaces the usual modus ponens by the cut-rule (that is, a rule which expresses the transitivity of implication). Take then a set of numbers counting subformulae in a proof-tree and call them bias. ) is then a sequence of such biases. And the parity of a locus is the parity of its length. Hence, a design can be visualized as a proof-tree of pitchforks, and each such pitchfork is a conclusion of a rule.
