If neither A nor B includes the idea of existence, then " some A are B " simply adjoins A to B. Conversely, if A or B do include the idea of existence in the way that " triangle " contains the idea " three angles equal to two right angles ", then " A exists " is automatically true, and we have an ontological proof of A's existence.
