We accepted so far assumption p: according to which our investigator has no troubles with enumeration of those factors he considers to be essential for the magnitude under consideration. However, this is not the case. There are some factors which are known to be influential for a magnitude under investigation but researchers can neither enumerate them nor mark their influences. After establishing a given image of the essential structure they are supposed to be the rest of significant factors for the magnitude in question. Our investigator knows that there are some significant factors for a given magnitude besides those shown in his image of the essential structure but he cannot enumerate them. Factors of this kind will be called interfering factors for a given magnitude.
