Reality: a statement about it as intelligible-being
No reality can get the value of being reality if it is beyond knowledge. It cannot be life and part of practice and cannot serve for the welfare if it is not revealed determinately. It is trivial to say that my reality is beyond my knowledge, separate from me. Misguided approach causes failure to determinate cognition of reality that leads to it as indescribable. In such a paradoxical situation, epistemological proving of Reality gets only a subordinated import. Reality independently from thought and thought isolated from language cannot be the object of philosophical reflections. Metaphysicians construct their systems of reality because of reason and fortify them by the rationale of reason comprising epistemic proofs, arguments, justifications, beliefs, instances and evidences. Do they drive reason in its proper direction? Epistemology is a natural urge of metaphysics; there is no other way to convince about the reasonability and justifiability of the systems. Even in some cases, they accept imagination also as a proof. Some may produce justifications and grounds of justifications of reality while others may find fault with it; to some it may perhaps give incentive to mystification and to some other to skepticism. Reality becomes the problem of philosophical investigation and discussion only when it figures in cognition and then, it is not a thing- in- itself or ontic reality but the intelligible reality expressed by language. It may be an individual or universal, may be beyond or inexpressible, may have a name or unnamable, but that can be known determinately thus only because language presents it so.
