But, similarly, the converse relation should correlate a lower-level G in one-many fashion with a range of upper-level properties E through F such that, minimally, it is possible for an instance of G to subserve an instance of E and not F, and on another occasion, F and not E (the system which is an Intel 80486 microprocessor (G) might instantiate the adding function (F) and not the tangent function (E), and vice versa).(6) So, given the same determinative connection, one must say:
