Easy test:

Get all the idealists and solipsists to stand in front of on-coming trains.

Result:

There will be only realists.

If of course, the realists are real. What if the train isn't real....Are you real, or just text on a screen? How can I know I'm real? Am I self-aware, or am I just your delusion? What if-how did-AHHHHHHH!!!!!!

RE: This can really make you think.
So just a thought. If the only way that the tiniest bit of observable reality is observed by being observed, what does that say about god?

I submit that our entire universe is simply the result of something noticing us. This "noticer" doesn't care, or plan, or create, or give two shits about us, he/she/it simply observed us for whatever reason at the point of singularity and here we are......Bang.

The entirety of space-time is a result of a continuos observance by a consciousness initially, and us observing ourselves to persevere, not in charge, but watching.

Fuck me, I need to quit drinking. Carry on. Drinking Beverage

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

While you can't be sure of other people's existence, you can be sure of your own, because the fact that you are experiencing anything is proof of that. The problem is just that you don't know what you are.

So, yeah, you could be very different from what you think you are, and you are stuck in a dream, unable to remember anything about your true self until you wake up. Maybe you are a unicorn on the planet Gangzex dreaming about living as a human on Earth. You just won't know until you wake up and smell the flowers.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

Yah, and that goes double for GirlyMan. Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
