Answer the question based on the information given in the passage.
When the mind, which knows itself but is still in doubt as to all other things, looks around on all sides, with a view to the farther extension of its knowledge, it first of all discovers within itself the ideas of many things; and while it simply contemplates them, and neither affirms nor denies that there is anything beyond itself corresponding to them, it is in no danger of erring. The mind also discovers certain common notions out of which it frames various demonstrations that carry conviction to such a degree as to render doubt of their truth impossible, so long as we give attention to them.
Which of the following statements do not weaken the assertion provided in the passage?
- The mind cannot have common notions without affirming them.
- When the mind provides attention to demonstrations carrying its own conviction, it does so at the peril of being proven wrong.
- Contemplation of idea of things cannot happen without the mind becoming one with the idea under consideration.
