But how can you MEASURE it? Only by comparing it with another arbitrary path length to see if it is longer or shorter.

And your answer can thus only be a PROPER STRUCTURE projected by the comparison.
So Dr. Dick is right after all?

The long and the short of it: partially differentiating long and short paths with respect to other relatively long or short paths.

The laws of definition involve partially differentiating the narrowing and broadening of categories as their "paths" cross other relatively broad or narrow categories and the PROPER definitions of things are projected out of these intersections?
