We can divide the meanings of content and object and formulate, through both, an understanding that not only buttresses their relation but also holds them apart. Contextually an object exists within a manifold composed of strata formed of layers which emerge in a conception and meaning of that which it “is.” On the other hand, the same object is merely an evidentially existing phenomenon which consists of its own meaning to itself; its own “appearing” and essence; its origin which, in fact removes all meaningful content and becomes, for consciousness, a mere object posing as an insignificant structure which plays no part in “moving” events and, moreover, is an empty vessel within a cloudless space of nothingness. Consciousness has to consider, within the same object, its content and its meaning, both of which exist with and without each other.
