    An indispensable and essential action, condition or ingredient. In medicine, one might test for something without which the possible illness wouldn't be possible. E.g. The absence of an underlying genetic mutation excludes certain types of cancer.
  2. Solipsistic
    Of or characterized by solipsism, or the theory that only the self exists, or can be proved to exist. E.g. "Her treatment philosophy dealt with madness as a complete, self-contained, solipsistic world that same people are not able to enter."
