Explicit preclusion

The conceptual process for the formulation of a dichotomy in which there is a set of one phenomenon and a counter-set of all other phenomena. The exclusion of an object to be eliminated from the counter-set of all validly knowable phenomena other than itself implies a previous apprehension of an object to be removed from all others and then removal of it from the set of all validly knowable phenomena other than itself. The preclusion is explicit in the sense that it does not require apprehension of all validly knowable phenomena in order to exclude an item from them.
