Kant was right on when he stated that the thing-in-itself (ding ansich), the noumenon, is unknowable to reason. It is so because it is seemless, without beginning and end. It is reality itself, which is timeless and has no scissions, divisions or qualities. Thus, a “thing” which encompasses/is ‘everything’. ‘N’ also can stand for the Aristotelian (and Platonic) ‘Nous’, which is pure act, without any potency (dunamis) remaining. The ‘unmoved mover’.
Pure Intelligence, pure Consciousness, awaringness itself – pure ‘act’, instantaneous, Now.
‘Creation’ is Now.
