The arrangement of materials that maintains the materiality of the arrangement.

Ubersichtliche darstellung? The surveyablitity, the "uno inituoi" of the relations between its materials, would exactly seem to imply a certain limit, a form of materiality...

Arrangement, like relation, is immaterial, isn't it?

I.

I suppose I'm thinking of the sense in which any sample of material is itself an arrangement, and the sense in which any arrangement can serve as material for arrangement with materials.

This, indeed, is the refusal (Wittgenstein's) refusal to assert the intangibility of the relation and instead simply arrange (in a perspicuous or surveyable presentation) the tangible materials involved.
