A combination of several items taken as a whole. There are two types of synthesis: a collection synthesis and a kind synthesis. According to the Gelug presentation, these two syntheses are nonstatic, noncongruent affecting variables and are known non-conceptually with sensory bare cognition. According to the non-Gelug systems, they are static phenomena and are known only conceptually.
