I cannot be conscious of an object as it is in itself through an immediate sense of it, but only conscious of the object as it is in “being” before me. This being of the now can belong to any object. I can only concern myself with the immediate sense of it before I can take on the task of what follows, which is rendering the object explicitly. Therefore, in immediacy, the object before me will always be of an indeterminate object for consciousness in the “here” and the “now” and not yet be what it explicitly is in the “after-here” and the “after-now.”
