we are clearly talking about ”social facts (”exteriority, priority (existing before and after us), constraint in the sense that

Durkheim defined these as the subject matter of sociology

something that develops out of, exists because of the formation of a group, that changes with the formation of the

group  - group phenomena, “emergent phenomena”, these are social facts. As distinguished from

psychological facts about the individual people that make up the group

the whole is greater than the sum of the parts -  like a

chemical reaction process of hydrogen and oxygen making something new, water. Or, put twenty 4 year olds in a room together and you end up with a collective phenomena to

rival a nuclear reaction
