What exactly does "Base" or "Emerging from a Base" mean (re: Mark Minervini)

I am going through Mark Minervini's books. He keeps talking about "Bases" & "Emerging from a Base" & Base 1, Base 2 etc but he hasn't clearly explained anywhere what exactly is a "Base". Is there a proper definition/description of what exactly is a base?
