Kant Thank You

Thank you everyone who helped me yesterday, whose names are too numerous to mention—but I'm writing you individually. Cameron Keys has a good observation in his comment on it:

Interesting choice of a passage, by the way.
Kant is presupposing the infinite universe of Newton. Assuming that our milky way is part of a milky way of milky ways, and so on, this "represents our Imagination with its entire freedom from bounds, and with it Nature, as a mere nothing in comparison with the Ideas of Reason..." This is an interesting moment, when Reason reduces Nature to "a mere nothing." Wow.
