 (Is not this the reason why men to whom after long doubting the sense of life became clear, could not then say wherein this sense consisted?)

6.432
 How the world is, is completely indifferent for what is higher. God does not reveal himself in the world.

6.35
Although the spots in our picture are geometrical figures, geometry can evidently nothing about their actual form and position. But the network is purely geometrical, and all its properties can be given a priori.
 Laws, like the law of causation, etc., treat of the network and not of what the network describes.
