The ground of diminution lies in the not-self

The ground of diminution lies in the not-self

Passivity is posited as a QUALITY opposed to reality, as NEGATION ( not simply as a lesser quantum of activity; . . . )

. . . the ground of a quality is called its real ground.

By means of the concept of substantiality, activity in the self (accident in the self) leads to the positing and determining of a passivity ( NEGATION ) therein.
