Full Idea

Since combinatorial collections are enumerated, some multiplicities may be too large to be gathered into combinatorial collections. But the size of a multiplicity seems quite irrelevant to whether it forms a logical connection.

Gist of Idea

Collections of things can't be too big, but collections by a rule seem unlimited in size
