Answer:

A consideration is different than a postulate. A consideration includes the acceptance of, or agreement with, an idea.

 

In other words, somebody postulates something and then you consider that this is so—you agree with it. You then have a consideration which you did not postulate.

 

Therefore, a consideration has some slight difference from a postulate.

 

All a consideration is, is a continuing idea, which you might say more aptly, “a fixed idea,” since all continuance is in itself an illusion.

 

Now, a consideration, then, is a fixed or continuing (less aptly said) idea or opinion.

 

A postulate can be of very finite or almost infinite duration.

 

…That’s because we do not at once assume that you would give a postulate as much force or duration as you would give a consideration, because a consideration is permanent and sort of fixed in most cases. It can be, of course, quite brief and quite passing.

 

A postulate is something that is originated. A consideration could also be originated by a postulate, but could also be the agreement with a postulate. Thus we have a slight difference between these two items, which must be understood.
