Through pure reason we can ascribe a reality to something even if we have no conception of it. In other words, a thing may exist as substance and we can consider it in whatever form it may avail itself, but, in its unity and definition, we can know only its possibilities and not its truth. Therefore, the procedure of reason is a synthetic unity drawn from, and necessitated, by its very nature and not, in fact, what its reason for being is, but only that it possesses reason. Pure reason connects time and space in that it provides the movement of itself in its unity and, through its possibilities, which are not necessarily known, forms the transcendental dialectical conceptions of the subject that contain no particular truth but its reasoning in general. This procedure of reason forms a series of conditions which necessarily contain self-contradiction. Reason is not reason without the force of its own negation. Within the synthetic unity that determines reality there exists a neutral corridor that separates all things and substances. Within this realm, concealed from consciousness but making consciousness conscious of itself, pure reason allows for the experience of reality and, by the division of the extension of substance, space, and time, this relation to being forms the subjective conditions in which life itself takes on a reason for being.
