and what's beyond the common senses?

All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason.

A Titanic Sick Sense

and what's beyond the common senses?

All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason.
— Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)

The titled responsion is commenting on Kant's "Titanic" revelation that sense perception is the apparatus for everything that follows.

There is nothing higher than reason, so say the Greeks. Reason is the higher power, higher than power itself. Reason is higher than the idea of God because of his inherent nature or "transcendent" nature. Reason is above God as the supreme being is more than an origin story; it's the origin of the story! Reason is the source of morality, law, and the creator of all things knowable. We are bound to it. Therefore, we are moral beings.

The argument goes that if you believe in God, then the reason must be something else. The only thing God could use to justify himself is reason itself, which he can use to justify everything. He has a reason for everything, even the smallest things. Thus, we can see that God is nothing higher than reason. That is why, if God exists, there is nothing higher than reason. So, I have nothing against the argument that says there is nothing higher than reason. I just don't buy the idea that God can use reason to justify anything, especially what he doesn't want you to do.

If God existed, he could use his reason to improve us. He could use it to make us more moral. He could use it to make us free. He could use it to help us build up our strength for the future. He could use it to teach us the answers to those questions we have about life. All he could not use it for would be the things contrary to his nature.
