Similarity I 189
Similarity/semantics of possible worlds/similarity metric/Hintikka: we interpret the distance as a dissimilarity of worlds.
Dimension: here, of course, there are different dimensions, i.e. Directions in which worlds can differ,
Intentionality/Hintikka: intentionality has therefore different dimensions.

Definition sameness in numbers/logical form/Hilbert: the sameness in numbers of two predicates F and G can be regarded as an individual predicate-predicate Glz (F, G). It means nothing other than that the objects to which F and the objects to which G apply are unambiguously relatable to each other in a reversible manner. Therefore the logical form can be represented as follows:

(ER){(x)[F(x) > (Ey) (R(x,y) & G(y))] & (y)[G(y) >
> (Ex) (R(x,y) & F(x)] & (x)(y)(z) [(Rx,y) & R(x,z) >
> = (y,z) & (R(x,z) & R(y,z) > = (x,y)]}.
