Have I got this right?

  1. I have empirical consciousness of my existence
  2. a determination such as this presupposes ‘something permanent in perception’
  3. All that I inwardly intuit is my series of representations, which cannot offer this something permanent
  4. Therefore this something permanent must be provided by something outer, and empirical consciousness of my existence is at once experience of something outer


  • Looks pretty good, can you unpack what you mean by "empirical consciousness"? That's probably the only place where there's room for a big error in what you wrote.
