Chapter-2.The Nature of the World

(a).The Dissertation on Experience-5.

Sense-perception, cogitation and understanding are messengers of the fact that there exists a fundamental substratum of a uniform and enduring Consciousness.

Cognition is impossible without a pre-existent link between the subject and the object.

Thought cannot spring from emptiness, for emptiness is itself nothing.

Activity is possible because there is creative imagination and imagination is a moving objectified shadow of Consciousness.

The denial or assertion of something presupposes the awareness of the thinking subject and the subject cannot stand apart from self-awareness.

Self-consciousness is, thus, unavoidable in being.

It is an eternal fact.

The perception of an object reveals the conscious relation that is between the subject and the object.

This relation should be based on a fundamentally changeless being, without which even a relation is not possible.

All contacts presuppose an immovable ground which supports all movements.
