Initially anyConcept anything Do the first part of the anything call using the given CONCEPT; then do the remainder of the anything call (i.e., without using the given CONCEPT).

Notes:

  • The anything call must have a well-defined first part.
  • After doing the first part of the anything call using the given CONCEPT, re-evaluate your position within the resulting formation and apply the definition of the remainder of the call.
  • Initially is a meta-concept (a concept that requires another concept as an argument). The caller can not say Initially anything. The caller must give a concept after the word Initially.
