Other physical objects we do not perceive directly but by detection. For example, physics laboratories have the ability to detect traces of imperceptible objects. These kinds of physical objects are not directly subject to the senses but detectable by the effect they produce under certain conditions. They are thus known by detection and by rational inference.
