Patanjali Yoga Sutra Kaivalya Pada Sutra No 16

Na ca ekacittatantramcedvastu tat apramanakamtadakimsyat

Both the object and the subject exist. The object is not dependent on the consciousness of one’s intelligence or whether the consciousness does not recognize the object, and this does not mean that the object does not exist. The object exists whether the consciousness perceives it or not. But the question is what happens to the object in case it is not perceived by the consciousness. Doesn’t a clock tick whether one hears it or not? The same analogy applies with the object that is not perceived.
