Actualism II 156
Existence / actualism / Nozick: possibilities that are not realized, do not exist. - What exists or does not exist are certain possibilities. Possibility / existence / Nozick: the structure of all possibilities does not exist itself, nor does it not exist! - II 155 if you wanted to refer to a mystical "exist and not exist" as "it aumed" you would only shift the problem. - Why should existence and nonexistence emerge of what aumed? - Def modate: the structure of all possibilities modates.
