Chhisholm II 265
Movement/Rest/Brentano: no autosemantic predicates, which could easily be attributed to the things themselves.
Rather, they engage in certain modes of representation of the subject.
In the analysis of the "rise of the sun", a "double continuum" can be distinguished, which must be clarified in a strictly experience-descriptive manner.
1. Movement and rest are subject to a primary continuum, whose degree of variation does not change.
2. On the other hand, the temporally constant or varying locality of the motion runs in a secondary continuum, the velocity of which may be irregular in several respects.
But these categorial structures are to be thought of in the context of local and temporal modes of representation.
II 266
Since the subject which perceives itself directly, as always "present," it becomes clear that this reference to the "existing present", also an external, moving body in the "other temporal modes", cannot be vividly perceived but still thought of as "one and the same" in "rest ".
A Copernican could save science by simply thinking the phenomena.
Question: would the phenomena also be saved if he says what he thinks?
Rest/Brentano: since the rest lasts, it cannot be experienced in the time experience without change. ((s) start, course, end of rest).
