[Let me expand on the first criteria in blog 1.4F

The nested form has the structure of normal context3(actuality2(possibility1)). The normal context puts the situation into context and the situation situates possibility.  This corresponds to Peirce’s concept of “precission”.

The “intersecting nested forms” is a tool that illuminates a structure.  This structure consists of (at least) two nested forms that intersect in the realm of actuality.

The horizontal nested form corresponds to a natural and philosophical orientation:            lawessential3(human_action2(disposition1)).

The vertical nested form corresponds to a moral religious orientation.

Theoretically, this axis would be: think3(human_action2(conscience1)).

Practically, in the world of speech-alone talk, this axis manifests the attributes of symbols. Symbols form exclusive orders (systems of differences).  Each interpellates the person.  This explains the term: “exclusive yet interpellating”.

Consequently, the vertical nested form is divided into at least two parallel nested forms. The differences between these two parallel nested forms are similar to the differences between “belonging” and “organizing”.

“Belonging” and “organizing” may be considered two types of symbolic orders or specialized languages.)]
