Philosophy For Kids: What Is The Experience Of Space?

Isn’t the experience of space just seeing a large container? Philosopher Kant said no, and that there is wonder when we look up at the starry skies at night. Why? Think about it! We know that the stars we see are just randomly scattered lights in the sky. But, do we see randomness when we look at them? No, we see order: eg., the constellations.

QUESTION: What is our mind doing to what we sense so that we see constellations rather than just randomly scattered lights?
