Unconditioned necessity, which, as the ultimate support and stay of all existing things, is an indispensable requirement of the mind, is an abyss on the verge of which human reason trembles in dismay.

 As we conclude from the distinction and separability of their ideas, that external objects have a separate existence from each other; so when we make these ideas themselves our objects, we must draw the same conclusion concerning them, according to the precedent reasoning. Most fortunately all this reasoning is found to be exactly conformable to experience, and the phaenomena of the passions. There is no rule in painting more reasonable than that of ballancing the figures, and placing them with the greatest exactness on their proper centers of gravity. To be sure, understanding and reason are employed in the cognition of phenomena; but the question is, whether these can be applied when the object is not a phenomenon and in this sense we regard it if it is cogitated as given to the understanding alone, and not to the senses. **PLEASE NOTE:  The world must be represented as having originated from an idea, if it is to harmonize with that use of reason without which we cannot even consider ourselves as worthy of reason- namely, the moral use, which rests entirely on the idea of the supreme good. Transcendental philosophy is consequently a philosophy of the pure and merely speculative reason. The proof, from the mere idea of a supreme being, belongs to another principle of reason and requires separate discussion. For, although not actually so expressed, the influence of such ideas of reason is very observable in the procedure of natural philosophers. The origin of kindness from beauty may be explained from the foregoing reasoning.
