By means of the meaning content immanent to it, “thinking refers” to things not immanent to it

10 For thinking, for presenting, judging, assuming, doubting, asking,
and so on, the things are only things as thought, as presented, judged,
assumed things, etc. /And, they are things thought only in that the act
of thinking has its meaning content. By means of /the meaning content
immanent to it, “thinking refers” to things not immanent to it, and

15 if they in general are, to things being in and for themselves. And,
if they are not, that is why they are not in thinking. They are still
transcendent. They are at least thought, meant, posited, believed, etc.,
as something being in and for themselves. But, once again, how is all
this to be understood?
