  • The nature of reality

    Firstable, everybody believes that the phythagorean theorem of geometry is true, but again people ask, "how do you know truth is true?" I don't know but I assume as well as most people in common sense that when we are born,the "physical environment" of which we are at directly influences what we observe using the five senses. So question to those who believe in reality as dependent upon human conciussness "what are we observing with our five senses if the physical environment is not their"? How can nothing have a direct influence on the five senses?

  • Yes, I definitely think that there is a reality independent of the mind.

    The concept of "the mind" is a human thing, specific to us two-legged, big-brained (or so we think) creatures. However, there is plenty of universe out there that does not need our help in order to exist and be fully real. The Bible says that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. He created man last. Now, I am not arguing that man is not important; I'm simply arguing that man is neither everything nor the only thing.

  • Yes, I Believe Reality is Independent of the Mind.

    As earlier stated, reality is simply a perception of an individuals mind and they can make "reality" whatever they believe it to be. Since there are so many different ways to view what reality is, it only makes sense that everyone is wrong because there can only be one true reality.

  • Yes there is

    Reality is only something that is in the construct of how we look at things. It is merely a framework in which we think that we exist and in which we work together with one another. It is in the eye of the beholder, so who am I to say otherwise.

  • Yes, for some people.

    It seems that reality is whatever people want it to be in their own minds. The fact that people see the world in many different ways and from so many different angles is reason to believe that many people do not see reality for what it really is. Obviously, there is a reality independent of the mind.

  • Problem of other minds

    I cannot be sure, ever, that there is something independent of my reality because it is impossible for me to be aware of it, because if it was, it wouldn't be independent of my mind anymore.
    I can only experience the reality I am aware of.
    The problem of other minds -- "given that I can only observe the behavior of others, how can I know that others have minds". I cannot be aware of anything else than my own awareness, therefore rising question if other minds/consciousnesses actually exist or are they just part of my reality which is ... Everything I have managed to conceptualize (including "others like me").
