Self-established existence

Existence of something established or proven by the fact that when one searches for the referent thing (btags-don), the actual "thing" referred to by a name or concept, corresponding to the names or concepts for something, that referent thing is findable on the side of the object as a focal support. The existence of that referent thing is established by a self-establishing nature.
