It was the famous philosopher Kant in his epoch making work the critique of pure reason who spoke of the sensate (world of the senses) as the Phenomena and the world of ideas or forms as the Noumena.
From the Kantian idea of Transcendental Idealism I have developed the idea of transcendental realism.
Kant’s theorization bifurcates a priori knowledge or deductive knowledge with a posteriori knowledge or inductive knowledge. Deductive knowledge is reasoning from a general premise to a particular one. For example: All Men are mortal. Socrates is a man. Therefore Socrates is mortal. Inductive knowledge is a posteriori and it is from the particular to the general. For example: Sugar dissolves in water is particular knowledge and from that understand that it is a general law.
I have merged both deductive (a priori) knowledge with inductive (a posteriori) knowledge. Ideas are permanent and we come to know through the senses for all cognition concepts. Kantian classification of intuition is rather vague. What Kant meant by intuition was a way of knowing. But a human being is a thinking, feeling and willing being. We have to be reminded that a being is thinking, feeling and willing anthrop. My argument is that ideas or forms are eternal and that’s a Platonic View. With that I endorse a Worldview Known as the Coigna which merges Kant’s transcendental idealism with my transcendental realism.
Ontology: the study of being has the following categories of Truth. They are Reason, Passion, Emotion and Belief.
How can reason be a category of truth? Reason is the application of the mind to an experience of knowing. In other words it contains what is fathomable to the mind. All of scientific laws, mathematical axioms, and literary theories form the content of reason. Philosophers of the past have bifurcated reason into deductive (reasoning from the general to the particular [example: All men are mortal: Socrates is a Man and there Socrates is mortal]) and inductive truths (reasoning the particular to the general (Sugar dissolves in water). The form of the law exists eternally and belongs to the sensate world and the meaning of the law belongs to sensible world. I have introduced a new term to merge the deductive and the inductive and it is called as the Coigna
Passion is a state of the mind where the body’s needs are gratified. It can also be a figurative one Passion is catharsis for the soul.
Emotion is also another state of knowing. Emotion is a way on which we share the world through our inner experience. Through emotion—we experience a catharsis. Emotion is a state of being, valuable state for the purpose of knowing.
Belief is another state of knowing. Belief belongs to the sensible world and the transcendental world. We know Christ as messiah as a historic figure and that’s a sensible world of belief. Knowing him as God the creator is transcendental belief.

Poets of morning sang epiphanies of colors. Muses chirped happily in the sky. I thank God Jehovah Jesus for making me blessed
I have completed the Gospel of John and I have embarked on Acts.
I came across a Blessing verse: ‘Ask in my name according to my will and he will give it to you. Your Joy will be a river overflowing the banks’.
It is said in Bible that the ‘Young Will see visions and the Old will see dreams’. How can we interpret this? The etymology of Vision is to see. The etymology of dream is sensations passing through the mind while asleep. In an interpretation of this: the young are more active and receptive to a dream’s contents. For the Old, a dream suggests a spiritual maturity.
I came across a verse: ‘I am a joy full of answered prayer.’
In the Name of Jesus Christ is an idiom for the proclamation of rebuking something that is disparaging. In the name of Jesus Christ get lost. Demons were expelled by saying the Name of Jesus Christ.
Covenant in the Old Testament was 10 Commandments given to Moses. In the New Testament it became Christ God who will redeem people from their sins. Covenant as an idiom means gifting someone with praise for their character. God is a covenant of Goodness. My wife is a covenant of goodness. God’s covenant for humanity is grace.
Feast of the Pentecost
The Feast of the Pentecost occurred in the New Testament when the Disciples of Christ and devotees gathered in a house. A wind blew into the house and people started speaking in tongues. The Feast of the Pentecost means an extraordinary, wonderful happening. Oh God Jehovah Jesus: let the feast of the Pentecost happen in my life.
What I have Written I have Written
When Jesus was being crucified: the high priests asked Pilate to nail him as INRI (meaning Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews). Later they told Pilate to change it. Then Pilate says: What I have Written I Have written. What I have written I have written as an idiom means being firm on a decision be taken. My loyalty for Christ is what I have Written is what I have written.
Joseph of Arimathea
Joseph of Armathea was a devoted follower of Jesus who asked Pilate to take the body of Jesus and bury it. He anointed Jesus with softest of balms and buried him in a cave. As an Idiom Joseph of Aremathea means, a gentle and kind soul eager to help the poor and the needy. Mother Teresa is a Joseph of Arimathea.
Cast the Net on the Other Side
Jesus after resurrecting appeared to the disciples. They were busy with fishing and to their ill luck caught no fish. Jesus told them to cast their nets on to the other side. And when they did, they got a sumptuous catch. Cast the net on the other side means getting something done in prosperous manner with divine help. Oh Lord Jehovah Jesus cast my nets on to the other side.
We all know that Christ has resurrected. Resurrection as an idiom means well being and prosperity. Oh God Christ: resurrect my life.
