Definition Counterfactual Conditional/Truth/Lewis: a counterfactual conditional is untrivially true if and only if it requires less deviation from actuality to make the consequent true along with the antecedent than it needs to make to the antecedent true without the consequent. - In short: A >> C is true if C is true in all next A-worlds.
