To stand between two similar objects, states, or times. The entity exists in this liminal space partially or wholly defined by the surrounding condition.
To be over or on top of another. Although this is common among objects or people, points of view and time can be defined with this vertical separation or change.
To exist in a continuous space or time but defined as separate, discrete objects or moments. The separate entities may not have a relationship between or among one another, but they create a heterogenous aggregation.
To express the method of use on or through some mode. The subject is a point or moment along some continuum defined by the mode.
To define an entity from a specific action or point in time or space. The initial state allows the measure of the following condition.
To describe through focus or study of or by another. A point of view is necessary for one to be defined in this way, and this entity is the object in view. A relationship exists between the two.
To be outside a set or selection. This can be either positive or negative for the object or person outside. However, this state helps define the entity and the other group.
To be close to something or someone physically, mentally, or philosophically. The concrete or abstract proximity of two objects or people creates likeness and comparison, which helps to define both.
In Spite Of
To exist without or against the support or acknowledgement of another entity. This condition makes the subject opposed or outside the influence of someone or something.
Move beneath or below an object or space to support, subvert, or subject. This relationship may suggest being controlled, but it may just be that it is in control.
