What do I mean by “there are things”? It simply mean that the first experience is beyond recognition of sensation and perception. We know nothing of sensing and perceiving. We are presented with representations of things, space and time – reality. I am not arguing for representationalism. There are representations and there are things that are represented but that things have a common characteristic of existing in space and time. Given no intervention (and this is an impossible reality) from something else a thing remains as it is. Things are also neither added to nor subtracted from the reality. There is conservation in all their forms. That things are “worked upon” by space and time they change in the form of deterioration (whatever this means). As long as objects are in space and time they change. That which is seemingly not changing are unchanging relative to other objects (and are in fact imperceptibly changing). That which does not change is is not a thing.
