y Part 10: Things that are away is not imaginable. Yet, he thinks of things that are
not true, but Descartes will leave it to another time.
y Part 11: However according to the senses things seem to be different like a candle
burning and after leaving it to be sometime, it is gone with only a pile of wax.
y Part 12: He believe the candle and the pile of wax to be the same thing because he is
using his intellect to do so.
y Part 13: But the senses says it is gone. The senses say that the people on the street
are moving clothing.
y Part 14: His intellect or common sense can also provide knowledge like the people
on the street or the candle.
y Part 15: If Descartes can reason that the candle is there, than why not other things?
y Part 16: Without intellect, senses cannot be perceived. Therefore, intellect alone
can create knowledge.
y Part 1: Objects of pure mathematics is real because Descartes can conceive them
clearly and distinctly. God possesses all the power of things he can see and there is
nothing impossible to him. His imagination and his conscious he apply to material
things is sufficient reason that they exist.
y Part 2: You can apply your intellect and your imagination to a triangle, which has
three sides. But you can only apply your intellect to a chiligon, which has a
thousand sides, and not your imagination.
y Part 3: Even if he has no imagination, it does not affect the essence of his mind. He
will remain the same even though it looks different from the mind. Imagination turn

y Part 4: He can perceive colours, sound, tastes, ect through the senses which have
reached the imagination. In order to examine this, he need to examine what
y Part 5: He will look at the things that is held true and examine the reason why he
doubt them or why he ought to believe.
y Part 6: My body can sense a lot things heat, pain, pleasure, and joy. I perceive
things that are not my, even though I did not give my consent. Sometimes they are
so vivid than the things I consent, that I believe that they are not from my mind.
y Part 7: Why does the body do things that have that is assume what it wants but have
no logical to what it wants? He feel that he should incline to accept these natural
things, since he accept the assumptions before writing the mediation.
y Part 8: Since, I now know myself better, I do not have to accept everything I see, nor
doubt everything I sense.
y Part 9: I know that all the things I conceive clear, can be produced by God, it is
sufficient that I can tell other apart from each other. On one hand I can see myself as
a thinking immaterial being, while on the other I can see myself as an unthinking
