HELPS Lexicon excerpt

1487 ei (a conditional conjunction) – if.  1487/ei ("if") introduces "a condition, thought of as real, or to denote assumptions" (viewed as factual for the sake of argument) (BAGD).  Accordingly1487 (ei) should not be translated "since" but rather always "if," since the assumption may only be portrayed as valid (true, factual).
