2.203 A picture contains the possibility of the state of things that it represents.

A picture is pregnant with possibility? No. That would be metaphysical, this is logic. It might be better to say that it implies the possibility it represents. That is, it implies the possibility of the possibility that it represents. The picture: "The cat sat on the mat" implies the possibility of the cat's having sat on the mat.
