*The relation between the believed in and the True is the relation between
a limited function and its limit. {a vector, and the thing toward which the
vector points?]   Ultimately  the observations that the function models
determine** the limit, but the limit is not determined by any particular
observation or group of observations.  Peirce believes that The World --
if, in fact, it makes any sense to speak of a World independent of the
human experience -- is essentially random and, therefore,  that
contingencies among experiences that lead to valid expectations are rare.
The apparition of order that we experience is due to the fact that such
predictive contingencies--rare as they may be-- are extraordinarily useful
to organisms and so organisms are conditioned to attend  to them.  Random
events are beyond experience.  Order is what can be experienced.   *
