Vectors as pluralism

Vector value was forced on us for the kind of reasons outlined in chapter 2 of my book Twelve Papers (, book) and is used in ways like those shown in my blogs of  21 Sept. 2010 and 19 Feb. 2011. Pluralism was developed independently, forced upon us by the kind of reasoning described in my blogs of  17 August 2012 and 21 July 2016, for example. But, clearly, substituting vector quantities for scalars is a kind of pluralism. The two lines of research are now linked together.
