Why, for example, does light move at “over 300,000,000 centimeters per second”? Peirce’s explanation is that “the laws of nature are still in process of evolution from a state of things in the infinitely distant past in which there were no laws” (Peirce 1992, 240). , from the “infinitely distant past”). This infinitely distant past, however, is not a determinate place from which the processes begin; to the contrary, it is indeterminate precisely for the reason that we have chaos, or a lack of habits and consistency, that allows for the possibility of identifying a determinate place at all.

At this point a clear contrast emerges between Peirce and Kant. For Kant the supertask of synthesizing an infinite regress of representations—or in Peirce’s terminology, points—is impossible, and any conclusions that rely upon such a task are to be rejected and chalked up as being illusory. For Peirce, on the contrary, the real itself is a supertask, or the continuum as processual unfolding that is the condition for the possibility of the successive points and representations that are derivative abstractions conditioned by, rather than conditions for, the continuous reality.
