According to Kant, how can we establish laws by observing a single event? In reality, we don’t have a choice. As it is virtually impossible to analyze the deep Universe, our laboratory experiments will never be as realistic, the “Universe-tubes” containing only a small portion of the reactive nature.
But on the other hand, the uniqueness of the universe is not an obstacle. We may well consider an event that is not reproducible. Just consider this condition as being equal to its own average.
By observing the sky, which hides the depths of the Universe, it seems so vast that we are partially inaccessible.
Rather than designing an “accessible” Universe which we know to be incomplete, inadequate, we must try to expand our knowledge of our complete lack of information and verify the adequacy of our perceptions with reality. We can try to generalize the whole universe with facts we observe locally. But nevertheless, we must be cautious in extrapolating an unobservable field of local events and vice versa by searching the unknown for hypothetical entities to support our theories. We will look further on the implications of these assumptions.
By jostling the symbolic Kantian, researchers wishing to study the Universe, to determine the laws that govern it, and to explain the formation and evolution of galaxies, had to imagine “models” which represented the hypothetical models that included all properties known in the Universe. These models are abstract designs, mathematics, where sensations are absent. They have nothing to do with reality. These logical systems can approach Kant’s Metaphysics , the world beyond which the arguments are free, knowledge separate from any relationship with experience. But scientists need this extrapolation to validate their theories, which we will talk about later.
