The Fool: What is real?
Choose you world?…. What do you think is the real, the true, the subsidence of existence?

The Positivist:
-Claims the only thing that is real or true is objects of physical sense perception.
(hmm not even the perception itself is real. Hmm?)
Think Russell

The Idealist:
- Claims the only things that are real or true are the perceptions.
(Don't look away because it's gone. Well then how do things remain? Because God is looking at everything keeping it there. hhmmmm)
Think Berkley

Transcendental idealism:
-claims everything is real; it's rather a matter of categorizing experiences.
(oh come on, everything, is real? but what about illusions. Who would think foolish things! )
Think Kant

The Substance Duellist:
There are two separate types of Realities/existences. Physical and Mental. And they can be completely Different. That is mind can ‘float' on its own.
(Yet somehow they interact, how convenient)
Think The Carts. (Descartes)

The Buddhist:
All particular are illusions. Its real just one massive Brahma!!
(Life sucks let's just die, and die for good this time!)
What is your world??????
Think Gautama

Pascal: you have to choose!!

You don't have to defend your REALITY I just want to survey:
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

The Fool: I made sure to insult every view equally.

The Positivist.
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Who's this The_Fool_on_the_hill guy? He doesn't know anything about philosophy. I've read a few posts now, and each one is filled with obnoxious philosophical errors. I hope he is banned soon.

No, you have to choose with Pascal's wager because the choice is A or ¬A. You're giving me the Options A, B, C, D or E. There are many, many other options you haven't listed.

Hylomorphism: is just a form of physicalism
panpsychism: all matter having a mental component, is ultimate answer of reality.
neutral monism: is covered under trancendental idealism.
Nihilsm: has no reality because well it doesn't exist.

You completely got Buddhism all wrong. I thought you were a philosophy major?

Buddhists don't believe in Brahma. The only time scripture mentions Brahma is to reject it.

Buddhists don't believe life sucks. Buddhists view life as something beautiful. Notice the Buddhist Lotus flower imagery.
