3. Several Conclusions From a Single Premise
We can also have arrows diverging from a single premise to two or
more conclusions. Thus, a single fact can serve as
evidence for more than one conclusion.
The law of gravity implies that water flows downhill, but the law
of gravity has many other implications: that the roof of a
building needs to be supported, that a rocket needs a certain
velocity to go into orbit around the earth, and so on.
