Since all impressions are internal and perishing things, and appear as such, •the notion of their distinct and continued existence ·can’t arise from them alone; so it· must arise from some of their qualities aided by qualities of the imagination; and since •this notion doesn’t extend to all of them, it must arise from qualities that only some impressions possess. So we can easily discover what these qualities are by comparing the impressions to which we attribute a distinct and continued existence with those that we regard as internal and perishing.
