Thirdly, When judged adequate without being so.       §23. Thirdly, When in its complex Idea, it has united a certain
number of simple Ideas, that do really exist together in some sorts of
Creatures, but has also left out others, as much inseparable, it judges
this to be a perfect complete Idea, of a sort of things which really it is not;
v.g. having joined the Ideas of substance, yellow, malleable, most
heavy, and fusible, it takes that complex Idea to be the complete
Idea of Gold, when yet its peculiar fixedness and solubility in Aqua
Regia are as inseparable from those other Ideas, or Qualities of that
Body, as they are one from another.
