Consequently, R is the conjunction of P and Q, regardless of whether or not it has some special sign embedded in it. Here, then, we have an example of a structure I in which there is a conjunction of P with Q on our account of conjunction, but there are no conjunctions at all to be found in the structure according to Belnap's theory.

There is one possible condition, independent of the rest, that seems a natural candidate for addition. It concerns the case in which an implication relation fails to hold.
