If there exist other modes of knowledge beyond our own understanding, is it possible that phenomena exist in a realm completely for themselves? Can an object exist in and for itself without entering the sensual world? Can spirit be considered a thing-in-itself since it cannot be known outside itself by appearing to itself? Spirit unfolds through being by lending itself to consciousness, but this consciousness of self is just that. It cannot reach any deeper. Being blurs its truth. Therefore spirit is in-itself-for-itself-for-being. Being could not be without spirit. And spirit could not uncover itself without being. It could not appear to itself as appearances are reflections of something, and spirit is nothing if it did not have being to protract it through a consciousness of the world. Therefore, being exists solely for the consciousness of the world. Spirit exists solely for the consciousness of itself through being.
