The way out of this dilemma is to stop talking about what states really are, and start instead to talk about what things they resemble. former being self-sundering through internally producing the latter out of itself. The transcendental materialist ontological vision here is that of an auto-disruptive, self-denaturalizing nature that drives itself beyond itself, namely, a nature whose effects, at least in the forms of human Geist both subjective and.

In other words, the conclusion of transcendental idealism given its stated premises, seems to be neither ontological nor epistemological. The conclusion cannot be a positive assertion of mind-dependent knowledge and phenomena on an empirical level of appearances on the one hand, and of an unknowable reality of "things as they are in themselves" on some 'transcendental' level.
