A subsumption index is a measure of a universe's ability to impose its physics on objects that do not originate within it. This quantity is directly opposed to remanence; if local space possesses a higher subsumption index greater than the remanence of the foreign object, be it a vessel or lifeform, the physics of that object will be slowly converted to those of the surrounding universe. The rate of this change is influenced by many factors, such as the volume of the aforementioned object, the numerical difference between the subsumption index of the universe and the remanence of the latter, and the variance between the physics of the two universes.
This index is on a scale from zero to infinity, and serves as a coefficient on the aforementioned calculation after the difference between it and object remanence is taken, allowing the rate of alteration to be calculated.
