Different modes of thought are contents that run from problematic and disjunctive, to assertive and apodictic. Through judgments they mediate sequentially and use truth as the basis of cognizant functionality. Even a falsehood is a truth as it relates to the judgment from which it emerged. Assertions are real or true and offer a positive or negative correlation to the subject in the way of its expression. One can say “the cloud overhead is filled with rain.” This assertion expresses a reality, or the truth, but can also be false in that the cloud is only vapor. When referring to an apodictic judgment, a necessity must be present as in “that flower needs water, or rain, to survive.” The contents of that judgment hold a necessary predicate on the direct survival of the object in question. These contents are necessarily true. The only problematic, or disjunctive, judgment countering the necessary content would be “without rain, or water, nothing would survive.” This is problematic in the sense that it holds forth a proposition that is true and, yet, is also a negative proposition in that it relies on a “lack of an object (rain, water)” to be positively true. All judgments are necessary for reason to emerge out of the complex arrangement of all that exists and does so through a systematic field of positive truths and negative truths supported by judgments which are, a priori, positive or negative in themselves.
