In order to construct the table of ideas in correspondence with the table of categories, we take first the two primitive quanta of all our intuitions, time and space.

 The synthesis of spaces and times as the essential form of all intuition, is that which renders possible the apprehension of a phenomenon, and therefore every external experience, consequently all cognition of the objects of experience; and whatever mathematics in its pure use proves of the former, must necessarily hold good of the latter. For, in the contrary case, it would be limited by a void time on the one hand, and by a void space on the other. But, with the exception of space, there is no representation, subjective and referring to something external to us, which could be called objective a priorI. For there are no other subjective representations from which we can deduce synthetical propositions a priori, as we can from the intuition of space. These are just some of the unbelievable items waiting for you at Free Bidding: But, inasmuch as one part of space is not given, but only limited, by and through another, we must also consider every limited space as conditioned, in so far as it presupposes some other space as the condition of its limitation, and so on.
