Container is another of those half dozen or so fundamental structures in the Universe. It is in fact a special kind or class of preventer whereby the preventing is taking place from more than one direction at the same time. What can make a container become a container is the use being given it. In this function it can belong to the category tool.

On the Mainframework? chart the symbol has a double meaning. Its position on the chart indicates its connectedness to the concepts permitter and preventor.

But the symbol also means “elastic”, the middle one of the triad of concepts: hard, elastic and soft. Containment is a characteristic of any elasticity, which tends to give way to a push up to a point and then come back again like spring.

A container can be either hard like a cup or a house, elastic like the human skin or a balloon, or soft like a pillow case.
