It can be determined that objects exist independent of cognition and are in “space and time” simply by a knowing in consciousness and the understanding that all objects, whether imagined or perceived, exist in and for themselves. They “live” outside the walls of immediate perception, revealed through psychical apprehension. To think of an object, a color, a tone, etc., brings about their appearance to consciousness and places them somewhere and everywhere. They become palpable entities made true either by physical contact or absolute imagery. Seeing the front of a house from a distance, one can figure that it has, in fact, other sides or it would not be standing. Therefore, the experience of an essence need not be empirical. It can exist in some noumenal realm as the intractably invisible correlate of the visible horizon.
