Alternate Spellings:
Short Description: The possibilities.
Long Description: In logic a distinction is made between mumkin (possible), wājib (necessary), and jā’iz (contingent). From the metaphysical point of view the possible amounts principially to the necessary, since of necessity every possibility has the reality that conforms to its nature.
