Combinations of
equivalences may be
seen in 1, a chain of
links — 2. rounds of a
ladder — 3. flight of steps, &c

This In Hence combination of equivalences may be considered regarded
as represented by any one of several emblems: it may be considered
as a chain consisting of many links rising one above
another; as a ladder consisting of many rounds rising
one above another; as a flight of steps consisting of many
steps rising one above another: as a scale of many degrees
rising one above another. At each step, the expression
— the sign aggregate of signs — the bundle of words employed
in planting impressing the idea in question into the mind experiences is subjected to
an ulterior degree of abbreviation or say condensation.

two , 4.

two & two & two & two, 8.

which is called multiplication, to the words two and

substituted the single word eight: to the eight figures
1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 and the eig four figures 2, 2, 2, 2 is substituted
the single figure 8: and so on through the multiplication
table
