Implication, strict V 4
Strict implication/Lewis (here actually CoCo, counterfactual conditionals) would allow no exceptions - Example: if I had not worked, nothing happens, but if we both ... then yes - but: if someone third had worked more so, nothing would have happened ... etc.. - Would not be possible with strict implication - possible worlds/counterfactual conditional here means that we consider only the nearest worlds.
