So how does Platonia's perfect necessary classes restrain or
contain this world of contingency ? Or does it ?

Hi Roger,

That is exactly my question! How does Platonism show the contingent to be necessary? As far as I have found, it cannot show necessity of the contingent. In the rush to define the perfect, all means to show the necessity of contingency was thrown out. This is why I propose that we define existence as necessary possibility; we have contingency built into our ontology in that definition. ;-)

Why do you write 'accidental'?  Platonia is our invention to describe classes 
of facts by abstracting away particulars.
