At least, I think so.

Kant suggested that metaphysics can be reformed through epistemology. He suggested that by understanding the sources and limits of human knowledge we can ask fruitful metaphysical questions. He asked if an object can be known to have certain properties prior to the experience of that object. He concluded that all objects about which the mind can think must conform to its manner of thought. Therefore if the mind can think only in terms of causality – which he concluded that it does – then we can know prior to experiencing them that all objects we experience must either be a cause or an effect.

That is all.

"Hijacking a thread"? Am I supposed to put on Groucho Marx glasses, grab my Glock 3000B auto-whammy water pistol and storm into the local sewing shop? Once there, I herd the owner and her elderly cronies into the backroom-interuppting their gossip circle round the pot-bellied stove as they spit Metamucil into a nearby chamber pot...take up my position near the spools and read my list of demands? Wonder what those would be? "Pull my finger, NOW!", "You want fries with that DON'T YOU?", "Please pull around-NOW DAMMIT!" and "I want 20 fives in 3 minutes or the thimbles get it!!!!"
