Condensations to 0.1 percent or less of the number of words in the original papers were seen to be possible after an examination of a set of related TCs similar to those in the Appendix ( Bernier, 1971b, 1975a). The name "Ultraterse Conclusions" (UCs) was given to these literatures. Arbitrarily, a conclusion that has fewer than 0.1 percent of the number of words in the set of original works has been defined as an UC. Condensed statements that are 0.1 percent or smaller in number of words in the original can sometimes be derived from a set of related papers. More conveniently, UCs are created after reading the TCs from a set of related papers rather than from reading the papers themselves. The relations among the conclusions of the set of papers can best be determined by writing TCs for the papers, indexing the TCs, and reading collectaneas of TCs under those headings that have attracted a number of TCs-- perhaps ten or more. From this set of TCs it is sometimes possible to create UCs or other Ultraterse Literatures (ULs). It may also be that from a set of TCs, there are no relations apparent to one who is knowledgeable in the subject area. The ability to create ULs by reading a set of related TCs is the surprise that illustrated the unexpected assimilation, remembering, and integration aided by TCs.
Condensations to smaller than 0.1 percent are possible. If one hundred papers yield one UC, the condensation would be to about 0.01 percent or to one ten-thousandth, and so on.
