Thus there is a conscious and an unconscious part of nature. The proper distinction is really between thought and being rather than between human beings and nature (though it is very difficult to avoid the latter terminology). Thus it can be said that in the human being's hearing, nature hears itself, or that, just as thought seeks to realize itself, so "reality must itself strive toward thought". 45 Marx holds that the highest development of a thing is its essential and most natural form. "46 Nature's realization, its highest development, is the human being.

Dur senses have been transformed in the same process. There is evidence that this has involved a constitution. If either the natural or the subjective side has not been developed, a meaningful object is not constituted. For example, given the development of an object (a new piece of technology, music, or art) without a corresponding development of the subject (a class whose conditions have not given rise to the development of sensitivities to music, art, or technology64), the object will not be an object for the subject.

Transformed subjectivity, we have seen, will change the perception of an object and the theories of c1assical politic al economy influenced the development of industry. Nevertheless, by 1844 theory is not a form of praxis in the sense in which it was earlier when Marx spoke of philosophy becoming wor1dly or criticism transforming the wor1d. To constitute the object, to realize our essence in it, requires labor. Consciousness affects the object in a much less significant way than does labor. In the case of the child or prehumans, since conception would be undeveloped, its transformation of the object would be even less significant, and certainly could not eliminate the need for reflection of the independent object.
