Entorage and Pejorative terms


Quasi in rem (Latin, “as if against a thing”) is a legal term referring to a legal action based on property rights of a person absent from the jurisdiction. In the American legal system the state can assert power over an individual simply based on the fact that this individual has property (bank account, debt, share of stock, land) in the state. Quasi in rem jurisdiction does not have much function in the United States any longer. However, in very specific cases, quasi in rem jurisdiction can still be effective.


Occam’s Razor

Reverse – Purge yourself through infallible detail…and leave a trail of factors

The principle is often incorrectly[citation needed] summarized as “other things being equal, a simpler explanation is better than a more complex one.” In practice, the application of the principle often shifts the burden of proof in a discussion.[a][citation needed] The razor asserts that one should proceed to simpler theories until simplicity can be traded for greater explanatory power.[citation needed] The simplest available theory need not be most accurate. Philosophers[who?] point out also that the exact meaning of simplest may be nuanced.[b]

In science, Occam’s razor is used as a heuristic (general guiding rule or an observation) to guide scientists in the development of theoretical models rather than as an arbiter between published models.[2][3] In the scientific method, Occam’s razor is not considered an irrefutable principle of logic, and certainly not a scientific result.
