I mean does the "vs" have a built-in generator now or what.
If cognitive illusions are grounded in a divergence from "reality", thus vs is an underlying function.
Yep which implies a hidden universe-wide mechanism/infrastructure implementing such a 'function'.

No sign of this was ever found of course, besides 'function' is a human-made abstraction anyway, so why the hell would we ever find it. Yet again a really good example of a cognitive fallacy/illusion.

Well really bye now, don't want to disturb your genius at work.
That universal type mechanism which forms that function is cognitive by nature, as the "vs." is strictly an observation of seperation or an intrinsic emptiness to phenomena...this is both abstract and universal. All distinctions through "vs." results in the localization of a phenomenon from another thus resulting in a singularity that is intrinsically empty on it's own terms...thus illusive.

That function is cognitive precisely because it shares the same nature of intelligence: the manifestation of definition with both objective and subjective reality existing through the intrinsic emptiness of assuming other phenomena.

People assume and are assumed by phenomena. So are natural forms such as solids, liquids, gases and plasma.

Hmm this quote looks interesting, here Kant seems to have been shown wrong. It's true that our sensations of absolute space and time are indeed sort of 'a priori' cognitive functions, ways how our experiences are constructed.

However there's a twist, all our experiences and 'a priori' cognitive functions are bound to, happening withing Einsteinian spacetime and causality. I don't even quite see how he could have dismissed his era's Newtonian causality and absolute space and time ideas.
The anonymously published work Aenesidemus was one of the most successful attacks against the project of Kant. According to Kant’s teaching, things-in-themselves cannot cause appearances, since the Category of causality can find application on objects of experience only. Kant, therefore, does not have the right to claim the existence of things-in-themselves.

This contradiction was subsequently generally accepted as being the main problem of the thing-in-itself. The attack on the thing-in-itself, and the skeptical work in general, had a big impact on Fichte, and Schopenhauer called G. E. Schulze, who was revealed to be the author, “the acutest" of Kant’s opponents.
