MORE WAYS OF FILLING A HOLE PARTIALLY (A, B) OR COMPLETELY (C, D).

The notion of a filler we have in mind is a geometric, highly idealized notion. It is also a thoroughly dispositional one, though some qualification will be needed in this regard. We shall generally talk of potential fillers, that is, of objects that could be used in order to fill e ahole. In fact we shall use 'filler' and 'potential filler' synonymously, unless we specify otherwise. A hole's filler need not fill the hole; it's just that it might.
