It is only conceptual awareness that can grasp and hold the total of its
experience—extrospectively, the continuity of existence; introspectively, the
continuity of consciousness—and thus enable its possessor to project his
course long-range. It is by means of axiomatic concepts that man grasps and
holds this continuity, bringing it into his conscious awareness and
knowledge. It is axiomatic concepts that identify the precondition of
knowledge: the distinction between existence and consciousness, between reality
and the awareness of reality, between the object and the subject of cognition.
Axiomatic concepts are the foundation of objectivity.
