The Abstract Condition

Abstract is defined as that which arises directly out the binding (the Third Condition TM).

While inertia describes the behavior of matter within the context of Motion and Force and this model deals instead with mass, inertia is helpful in as far as it encapsulates an object bound into a trajectory. In other words inertia and momentum describe the self evident experience of knowing in advance approximately where some material will land when it is tossed or thrown.

What makes the experience abstract is the capacity for “other aggregates” of material to cross that trajectory at any opportunity other than when the object is in our way. The trajectory is real. It is predictable, and reproducible, yet only for a moment does the material in motion have to exist at any given point along the trajectory to interfere with the aforementioned “other aggregates”. As long as the inertial motion along the given trajectory is undisturbed. We may rightfully assert that this is an experience of persistence. We may assert that while given points along a trajectory are existential, it is the binding (the entire trajectory) that is greater than the existential  – the persistent

We must extrapolate the “trajectory” from experience. The abstract, our Third Condition TM is a powerful encapsulation. It tightly constrains hierarchical extrapolations while freeing us to engage complexity consistently and specifically to any scope or extense.
