Note 2

For example Iceflowers, colonies of Diatoms, and Sponges are, each for themselves, weakly expressed Totalities, which, with respect to their degree of unity, find themselves somewhere between a genuine aggregate (for example a granite pebble) and a genuine continuum (for example an atom -- which is at least close to being one), situated, as they are, near the aggregate side. They are ordered aggregates.
