  TOTAL. Complete; containing the whole; as the total amount of an account is 
  all the items of such account added together; total incapacity, is an 
  absolute and complete incapacity to do a thing. A married woman is totally 
  incapable to make a contract, because, although having intelligence, she has 
  not legal capacity and an idiot is totally incapable to enter into a 
  contract, because he has no will.
