We were justiﬁed in this shift because the pathway Zm is an association pathway, as is sA, and the physical processes taking place through such association pathways should always be the Reference 13 same, regardless of their direction. In like manner we can also include the relationship between A and Z for secondary identiﬁcation. Since all these are nerve pathways, abnormalities of excitability or ability to conduct signals are always the sole basis for disturbance of secondary identiﬁcation. Three cases cover all possibilities: reduced excitability or conduction ability; increased excitability; and aberrant excitability.
The number of concepts depends on the number of solid objects. Perhaps you are astonished that I have so far presented it as though only a few (and always the same) objects would enter our sensory world. You might ask: Do not things in the outer world come into the realm of our senses in almost infinite number and indescribable multiplicity? Fortunately, a specific answer is possible. The number of words gives us a clue to the number of concepts. The number of concepts that a particular individual possesses is shown by the number of words with which he functions.

The question then arises: How should one view such ownership?
