1 To be and to exist. Swedenborg seems to use this word"exist" nearly in the classical sense of springing or standing forth, becoming manifest, taking form. The distinction between esse and existere is essentially the same as between substance and form.

2 For the meaning of this phrase. "distincte unum," see also (n. 17, 22, 34, 223), and (DP n. 4).

3 It should be noticed that in Latin, distinctly is the adverb of the verb distinguish. if translated distinguishably, this would appear.
