The sensation of cold is not a simple event in my consciousness. Instead, you discover coldness through your relation to the cold. Without you, the cold wouldn’t be cold. Without the cold, you wouldn’t be experiencing cold. The cold has an objective existence in and of itself and its quality is there through you. For a polar bear, for example, the cold might be experienced as warmth. So the quality of cold is there because you experience it. And because it is different for everyone, we discover ourselves through this relation. Existence then comes into being through a dynamic network of relations.
